South Crofty was the last operating tin mine in Cornwall. Following its closure in 1998, some of the last reserves of ore were stockpiled especially for the South Crofty Collection. This partly processed ore continues to be smelted in batches to meet the ongoing needs of the workshop.
Each item is issued with a certificate of authentication explaining the origin of our tin and a brief history of Cornish tin mining.
We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to own a little bit of Cornish heritage and a special piece of Cornwall.
