Hello, everyone,

I'm looking for a fabric dial, slide control knob and back plate (parts are circled by yellow shapes) for my Morphy Richards iron. The most important part that I need is the fabric dial. If you just have that part, then that will be fine.

Thank you

That design

Looks very much like a mid 60s Proctor Silex???????

Hans I agree with you....

I wonder if Morphy Richards had a licensing agreement with Proctor-Silex like English Electric did with Westinghouse? PAT COFFEY

Very similar!

Thank you for you comments. I have to admit, I have never heard of Proctor Silex until it was mentioned in your comments. I've looked up the company and they have made some very beautiful quality products in their time.

I definitely believe there was some sort of licensing agreement going on between the two companies (as mentioned by appliguy ), because in the image I've uploaded, there is a striking resemblance between the Proctor Silex iron (cream and gold one on the left) and the Morphy Richards model as mentioned here.
