Provenance and Authenticity Each individual item we produce is issued with a Certificate of Authentication explaining the origin of our tin and and brief history of Cornish tin mining.

Although sadly no tin is being mined in Cornwall these days, we are proud to hold the very last reserves of tin ore extracted from the world famous South Crofty Mine just prior to its closure in 1998. This valuable tin ore continues to be smelted on an ongoing basis to meet the needs of the Collection.

Each design is skilfully hand crafted in our workshops near Truro, Cornwall still using many of the tools and procedures established when the Collection was launched in 1988!
