My Papaw used to have a Tin Cup that he would use at a water spigot that stuck up out of the ground on the hill above his house in the countryside of West Virginia.
This was the most refreshing water ever!
Relive the experience with a 'Classic Tin Cup' available at Jacob Bromwell, the nation's oldest housewares manufacturer.
Their tin cup is available blank, or stamped with 'U.S.', like those used by soldiers in the Civil War. All items on their site are 'Made in the U.S.A'.
"If these cups could talk, what a tale they would tell. Back in 1819, Jacob Bromwell was handcrafting tin cups 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 American icon, and travel back in time to those simpler days. Enjoy a quiet 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.
Each legendary cup makes the perfect gift for the history buff, the busy executive, and anyone who appreciates nostalgia. So let your imagination flow as you enjoy this epic relic of Americana. You'll surprisingly bring history to life with each sip."
