Antique Joseph Hall Rohrman Tin Canister Hand Painted (civil War Era Canister):
J.H. Rohrman (1820-1874) was a Tinsmith from Philadelphia, PA. His business was located as the stamped area states, 606 Cherry St in Philadelphia. The company was well known and produced Tin Canisters and was under contract during the Civil War to [produce Tin 8-ring Bullseye Drinking Canteens. He also held at least one patent for the improvement of Tin Lanterns.
This piece was, most likely, a Tea Canister.
Most of the ones that I have seen in original paint (Red) have a Gold lithograph of leaves and scrolls.
This Canister is sound and rust free. The lid is sound and closes. There are no holes. The inside is just Tin.
There was little remaining decoration on this one, so I have sanded and primed it. It is hand painted (using no stencils) with an eye to an Antique-style Eagle. The colors are real Red, Green, Black, Mustard. There are numerous thin layers to seal the paint.
Dimensions: 10" tall; 6 3/4" x 7 1/2" base.
