Billy Can (tapered)


  • Product Description

      A billy can was traditionally used for boiling water or making tea and coffee over a campfire. This elegant tapered can was also a common sight when farm workers were going out for a long day of hay-baling; it kept their tea nice and hot while they worked, making it the ideal lunch companion. Made in Finglas by traveller tinsmiths James Collins and Tom McDonnell, these cans are the original shape, made for hundreds of years by skilled craftsmen.

      Stake measures 60 cm approx.

      Maker: James Collins & Thomas McDonnell
