The tinsmith was an invaluable tradesman for cooks in the 18th and 19th centuries. He crafted useful household items like the wall pocket and colander, and then ornamented them with handsome punched designs. Originals in the Colonial Williamsburg collections inspired our pieces. Two “Tin cullenders” were listed in Lord Botetourt’s inventory taken at the Governor’s Palace in 1770.
