Classic Tin Cup


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.

    As a premium material, stainless steel is heavier and more durable than tin, and will provide you with a beautiful and more sophisticated look.


    Our beautiful craft gift box promises to leave a lasting impression for any occassion.

The cup is nice. Do not bother to buy the "craft" box, however. It is simply a card board box with the company branding inked on it.

Why spend $125 on this cup? I'll tell you why... because it's the real deal. 100% authentic and made on the original machines by Bromwell. It's worth every penny of it.

I bought a stainless steel version with custom stamping. It was amazing. I highly commend it. The workmanship is amazing. The custom stamping, which cost $150 extra, is professional and perfectly legible. The whole thing is very well made. BUY THIS PRODUCT.

This a a great cup. I t is very comfortable to hold for long periods of time. I intend to use this shiney cup to beg on the street corners in Washington DC. The cup is so nice that I am sure that I will make up the salary lost from the unpaid Furlough days being forced on government employees. This definitely makes me feel almost self-employed...who would have thought!

I will be referring everyone I know to your company. Great customer service is rare these days

I'm not one to write reviews but I just bought this and had to tell you what a neat product this is. It makes water taste better too - probably has to do with the 'original tin' finish.
