The Tin Shop

Utensils and Boxes & Cans

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.


#443      19th Century Fork & Knife Set         $11.95

This set is made of carbon steel with wooden handles. Hand assembled in pewter mounting. They are copied from originals in our
collection. These high-quality items are quite modestly priced.

#444      Civil War Army Spoon         $5.95

Of the myriad patterns of spoons used during the War, we have chosen this one because it is immediately identifiable. Only the Army would specify a spoon which was made of two parts, the bowl being riveted to the handle and then, the whole thing being tinned. The originals were obtained from a collector who dug them at Grand Junction, Tennessee, where large camps were situated in 1862. The soil here preserves many things in "like-new" condition.

#444TS      19th Century Fork, Knife, & Spoon Set         $17.50

Combination of #443 & #444

#NI451      Folding Fork, Knife and Spoon Combo         $22.95

This is copied from an original in our collection. The fork and knife fold on one end and the spoon on the other. There is an original pictured in Echoes of Glory.


#308RW      Small Tin Dipper         $34.43
