Standing just under 3 niches and measuring 2 ¾ inches in diameter, this neat little tinned sheet iron cup would have been just the thing for personal use. Large enough to offer a good drink or helping of soup or stew for the luckier troop yet lighter and more easily carried on the march, such sturdily fashioned iron cups are well documented in period photography and public and private Civil War collections. The cup is fashioned of heavy sheet iron rolled and soldered with the classic flat bottom, a durable handle is secured by swaged iron pins with all then hot-dipped in molten tin to produce a campaign worthy personal utility. We discovered three of these period tin cups here in an early 19th century Maine attic where they had been set aside for decades and are offering each here individually for the collector / historian who would like one. Each is entirely original and hand crafted in the period and remains in fine, likely unused condition with lots of still bright tin finish yet with age patches and lots of good evidence of un-touched period originality.
