Tin Items

The collection began to be created at the beginning of the 20th century in connection with the founding of the Town Museum in Přerov in the year 1902. It was expanded by numerous gifts and acquisitions in particular in the 1920s and 1930s and from occasional collections. It was consequently added to in the 1970s with an extensive collection of tin dishes from the château in Rokytnice near Přerov.

Items from the time period from the 18th up to the 19th century are represented in the collection. The older period consists of unique collectible items, the majority of which come from the 19th century. The collectible items represent products from Bohemian and Moravian tin workshops. Workshops from Cheb, Karlovy Vary and Olomouc also have their products in the collection. 

Items in the collection

Cínové nádobí z počátku 19. stoletíThese primarily consist of items of utilitarian value: dishes, jugs, kettles, plates and bowls. There are also various guild artefacts: goblets, guild kettles, plates and collectible items, documenting crafts society in Přerov. Liturgical items are also represented to a smaller extent: candlesticks, oil lamps or smaller jugs and items combining tin with glass and ceramics. The collections also include items produced from other metals: copper, silver and nickel silver. 

A dish from the beginning of the 18th century, produced in the tin workshop in Olomouc and a copper lavabo, produced from the middle of the 18th century rank among the most significant items. This, fairly small branch collection, consists of 117 recorded collectible items.

The collection is administered by Mgr. Petr Sehnálek (Social Sciences Department).
