Our tin shop is world-famous for its quality and craftsmanship. In addition to canteens and cartridge box tins, we have a nice variety of other handcrafted products. These items are all hand-made here by experts.
The craft of the tinsmith (or tinker) is fast disappearing. Many of the these items are hand worked, hand soldered, and riveted - true to the tinner's art of the past. We do make the concession of using lead-free solder on the joints of items which may be used for food and drink.
Lead free solder is used for food and drink. Lead free sholder has a lower melting point; therefore, it is important to keep items 1/2 full of liquid when cooking over a campfire.
This heavy tin cup has wired edged and riveted handle, like the originals found at Revolutionary War sites. You can warm your coffee (or tea, if you please) in the fire without fear.
3 5/8" base, 4" high. Holds approx 12 oz.

#310RW Tin Tankard $51.98
This tapered tankard is 6 1\2" tall. It will fill the bill for house wares pilfered by passing troops or a gentleman's mess. Executed by our tinners to be a sturdy item intended to give many years of use.
18th Century Ale Boot $108.00
This is not, we suspect, the name the Colonials used for this most useful handmade tin item. Original examples show up from time to time in museums and collections. We carry one in the field because it is the handiest and quickest way to boil water for beverages such as coffee and tea. Just shove the point into the fire, the water is boiled quickly and you can still handle the container. One thing is certain, it provokes an amazing amount of interest and comment.
#417 Coffee Boiler Covered Cup (“Billie Cup”) $67.15
These cups are slightly taller than the Army Cup and have a domed lid which is both soldered and riveted to the cup. They have a lift ring on the top and a bail handle for use on the cook fire. All soldered tin ware should be over half full of liquid when placed on the fire, an it should be removed when the liquid boils. To simmer, set at the edge of the fire. This is one of the most popular products we make.
4 inches x 5 ¼ inches. Holds 24oz.
