Extremely fine, elegant and beautiful objects and offered at a much lower price than they deserve. And purchasing these for your collection is made even more pleasurable by the very high standard of care of the owner which translates to immediate attention and swift and relatively low cost shipping.

About

A passion for tins...

I’ve developed a passion for tins in recent years, and in addition to collecting them for myself, started selling them online and in antique shops. Circumstances required me to do work on a flexible schedule, and my journey as tinprincess started to evolve.

For me, a tin’s value or desirability goes beyond its rarity or near perfect condition. It has to do with its beauty. And sometimes wear and patina can enhance the beauty of a tin, giving it a personality or visible history which is totally unique.

My love affair is with antique tins from around 1900, when biscuit makers tried to outdo each other with elaborate designs, many figural. I’ve started a collection of turn-of-the-century handbag tins -- these are fascinating, delightful, and hard to find. Some have been known to make their way into the Etsy shop.

But tins from all eras captivate me. I look for beautiful colors, graceful shapes, pretty patinas, and interesting artwork. I am thrilled to find the right homes for these “jewels,” as I call them.

You’ll find more than tins at tinprincess – I love boxes of all kinds, and I’m now smitten with vintage paper items, like candy boxes, hand fans, advertising cards, art prints, etc. So other surprises await you as well…
