Lipton Tea Tins Chronology

Author(s): Robin Mills

Year: 2015


Embossed Lipton Tea tin cans are a ubiquitous form of material culture found in many sites throughout the Western states and Alaska. Tins dating from the early-20th century through about World War II used paper labels, which almost never survive archaeologically. Tins with paper labels were purchased on eBay, which provided enough information to allow dating of the embossed Lipton tins commonly found in sites.
