We specialize in high-quality reproduction and decorative tinware, using the best materials available in the United States. All reproduction tinware is made with the best quality hot-dipped tinplate (the kind they would have had in the 18th and 19th century) made in Chicago. Decorative pieces are made using high-quality tin electroplate made in Pennsylvania. We use only pure tin solder for joining tinplate. No lead of any kind is used in our tin shop or on any of our products. If you buy from Dakota Tinworks, you can be assured of the highest quality products.
