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.
Candle Holders and Lanterns
This candle holder and tinder box provides an authentic way to carry candles, matches, punk, flint and steel, etc. within the box and use the candle holder on top.
4" diameter x 2 3/4" high.
This small gourd shaped lamp has a hinged lid, a handle with a hook for hanging and a chain with a wick pick. Furnished with a wick. Use only oil such as Everglow by Dixen Enterprises. Keep your wick down to eliminate smoke and you can enjoy period lighting at its most nostalgic.
Similar to an example in the Henry Ford Collection, this little gem provides a small, sturdy lamp which may be easily carried. Furnished with a wick and pick. Extreme care should be exercised in using these lamps. While the lamp oil is flammable only at the wick, you do have an open flame.
From the F.J. Kravic collection, as shown in the Encyclopedia of the American Revolution. This large lantern is the one chosen by the National Park Service for us to make to light the "George Washington Birthplace National Historic Site."
The lantern is 12" tall and the base measures 4 1/2 inches square.
The National Park Service recently requested that we use their research material to produce this lantern. It is shaped like a sconce,
has a ring inside to accommodate a chimney, and a handle on the back. The handle has a slotted hole which will allow the lantern
to be hung from a nail like a sconce if desired.
7 1/2" tall and 2 1/2" diameter. With Glass chimney.
