Tinsmiths were very necessary in the 19th century ....so many items were made of tin, especially kitchenware items. The quaint appearance of tin draws your attention when you see a collection of tinware. You are invited to share your early tinware items and give any information that you have about it's use. Below is an example of an early tin nutmeg grater designed to hang on the wall when not in use.
