Back in December 2006 there was a great deal of discussion
about surviving examples of pre 1600 wafer irons.
I have come across an example on page 114 of the new volume
At Home in Renaissance Italy. It's the V&A catalogue of their
exhibit .

Wafering Irons, Umbria 1481
17.3 cm
It's part of the V&A collection but is not included in the collection that
can be searched on the website. At least the accession numbers and searching
under the subject doesn't turn them up.

I still don't remember it having anything on the patterns on period  
wafer irons, though. I'd love to get such info though. And if someone  
has pictures of such patterns, I can put graphics info files.
