If these cups could talk, what a tale they would tell. Raise a toast to history with America's original tin cup, just as our forefathers did when creating our great nation. In 1819 our company was handcrafting these tin cups here in the USA without welding, soldering, or rivets, and we're still producing them the same way today with a little help from the original machinery and equipment. Take a sip from this outrageously authentic American cup, and travel back to a simpler time. Forget about the telephone and Internet, and instead enjoy a peaceful moment much like the cowboy tending his herd, the explorer drinking from an unspoiled stream, or a Civil War soldier relishing a quiet moment between battles. Standard issue during the Civil War, each American made tin cup makes the perfect gift for the history buff, the busy executive, and any guy or gal who appreciates nostalgia. We invite you own this precious piece of manufacturing history and to take a nostalgic journey into the American past.
