Welcome the New Year with our newest addition to our yearly "Trades" cup series of the 2018 Tin Shop Jefferson Cup. Soldiers valued tinware for its durability, low cost, and light weight. To supply the army during the Revolution, Virginia's government established a tin shop for the Tinsmith to produce kettles, cups, plates, and other items. Engraved on-site in the Colonial Williamsburg engraving shop, this pewter cup bears on the front the image of a tin smith working, and on the back an inscription of Colonial Williamsburg 2018. 3 1/8" dia.. 8 oz.. Machine engraving available.
