German tin craftsmen have been producing unique goods since Roman times: tin and lead mines have been operating since the 3rd century. Historians believe that the Germans collected copper and other raw materials for their famous metalwork in their epic travels.
Before the eighteenth century, people regarded tin as an object of the poor, a cheaper substitute for silver. Highly polished, the tin was gradually replaced by workable tiles, then porcelain, at the end of the 18th century. The artisans copied many of the shapes and designs used on their silver pieces directly on the tin, creating more decorative gift items.
The set is in good working order. The cups have some slight signs of wear. One of the cups has a slight depression in the base. And some mugs are colored a little darker than the rest.
Excellent addition to your vintage collection or a beautiful gift for someone with German ancestors.
This set would make a beautiful gift or a plus for your home, party or collection.
