Tin mine engine house – an embossed solid Cornish tin model of a Cornish engine house.

Scattered throughout Cornwall, standing sentinel over precipitous cliffs and rugged moorland, ageing stone structures defy the ravages of time. These buildings once contained giant steam engines that heralded an era when Cornwall led the world in mining technology and produced over half the world’s tin. They stand today, a Cornish icon, above the old tunnels, shafts and workings – abandoned, water-filled, dark and silent – the real monument to the Cornish miner.

Base width: 31mm Height: 61mm Base depth: 29mm

Supplied in a velvet draw-string pouch.

    Very pleased with this little tin mine, so much so I’m going to buy another one for my nephew to remind him of Cornwall now he lives in Australia. Very nicely packaged with purple lined box.
