Stemming from our deep appreciation for the past, as well as a passion for early American craftsmanship, The Tin
Peddler was established in 1974.
It is with that spirit of craftsmanship that we strive to create each item in the
same manner as our colonial predecessors made them some 200 years ago.
Using only simple tools, each part is cut, shaped, and soldered, to form a replica of an early lighting
device, all created 100% by hand. Although many of our pieces are authentic reproductions of 18th
and 19th century lanterns, lamps, sconces and chandeliers; we are honored by the fact that we are establishing our
own legacy for future generations. Therefore, a major part of our lighting gallery is dedicated to original designs
and custom finishes that are uniquely our own inspiration. We encourage our customers to be inspired as well, and
welcome the opportunity to create the vision that they have in mind.
We have been blessed over the years to see our work represented in museum stores, restoration projects, as well as
many fine homes and shops across America and abroad. It is our hope to have the privilege of serving you soon and
meeting all of your lighting needs.
