Flaggon (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired.
Although this is not a documented piece, this style was very common in the 18th century. You will find this shape repeated in period silver and pewter pieces. This is a large cup, with a graceful taper. The body is tin lined copper, with a rolled rim. In the lidded version, the lid is attached to the body with an 18th century style hinge. This is a flaggon you will be proud to own or give as a gift! Dated: 18th century style. Materials: Copper . Dimensions: 5 1/2" tall, 3 1/4  cup capacity.
Flaggon: $115.00
Lidded Flaggon: $150.00

Tavern Lidded Tankard

Flaggon With Tavern Lid (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired.
This is our basic flaggon above, with a tavern lid. A tavern lid was a simple lid that had a chain attaching it to the handle. You can also order these lids seperately for use on other cups. They are great for ceramic mugs. See dimensions under "Flaggon", above. Lid and chain are copper.
Flaggon With Tavern Lid: $140.00
Tavern Lid Only: $30.00

Virginia Tankard

Virginia Tankard (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
We know tin lined copper tankards were not uncommon in the 18th century, but finding existing examples is difficult. Because copper, like precious metals and pewter, is "recyclable", broken or outdated pieces were usually sold for scrap. Paul Revere made his fortune buying up scrap copper to line the hulls of ships. As a result, few examples of copperware are left. That is why we were so excited to find this original tin lined copper tankard! It was discovered in Virginia, and dated 1645. We have reproduced it exactly. It is of heavy guage copper, tin lined with a hemmed edge. It has a large, comfortable handle that is riveted to the body. This is a really special piece! Dated: 1645. Origin: English. Materials: copper, tin. Dimensions: 5" tall.  3 3/4 cup capacity appx. 
Virginia Tankard: $140.00

Cathy's Cup

Cathy's Cup (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
Our good friend Cathy Johnson uncovered the original in Missouri. This style dates from the early 19th century, and can be seen in paintings and illustrations of the period. It has a reverse taper (larger at the top than the bottom), and a rolled edge. The hemmed handle is detached at the bottom, allowing the cup to be hung from a belt or apron. The original is tin, but we also offer our reproduction in tin lined copper. Dated: early 19th century. Origin: American. Materials: hot-dipped tin, or tin lined copper. Dimensions: 2 7/8" dia. top, x 2 1/2" base, x 3" tall. Holds about 1 cup.

Cathy's Cup, Tin Lined Copper: $47.00

Drinking Cann

Drinking Cann (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
A "drinking cann" of tin is as accurate as you can get for a common man's cup! These were inexpensive, straight sided tin cups with a simple hemmed edge and handle. This style cup was produced in great quantities throughout the 18th century. Dated: 18th century. Origin: English/American. Materials: tin. Dimensions: 3" dia. x 3 7/8" tall. 2 cup capacity. Available in tin lined copper.

Drinking Cann, Tin Lined Copper: $49.00

Gill Cups

Gil (above)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
This is a reproduction of an English 18th century gil cup. Gil cups were used to measure rum rations (please note, the lidless gil cup IS documented, while the lidded version is NOT documented). These cups are heavy copper, tin lined, and have a sturdy handle. They measure 2" diameter by 2" tall. 1/2 cup capacity, or 4 oz.Note, Both the Gill and the Jack cups are just that...cups. They are not made to be an accurate measure, but only approximate. The measures are accurate, the cups are close.
Gil -  $40.00
Gil with Lid - $54.00


Jack (above)
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired.
Folks asked for a jack-sized cup after we brought out our Jack Measure (located on our Cooking and Baking Utensils page), so here it is! It's almost jewelry, it's so small. Styled after our Gil cup, it holds 2 oz., or half a Gil. Measures 1 7/8 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Made in copper with our food-grade tin lining.
Jack - $54.00

Tin Beaker

Beaker (above, in discontinued tin: now offered in tin-lined copper only)
Handmade by Peter Goebel. Historic reproduction.
Beakers like these were very common, especially at the beginning of the 19th century. We have reproduced the two most popular sizes. Heavy tin, like the originals, with a rolled rim. The nice thing about these beakers is that they nest - so you can fit a lot of cups in a small space! Dated: mid 18th to 19th century. Origin: English/American. Materials: tin-lined copper. Dimensions: LARGE - 5" x 2 1/2" base x 4" rim. Holds 1 1/2 cups.
SMALL - 3" tall x 2 1/2" base x 3" rim. Holds 1 cup.
Large Beaker, Tin Lined Copper: $49.00
Small beaker, Tin Lined Copper: $44.00
