"Please have a look at my work and stay awhile." Dick Toone, Artisan and Proprietor


This fully appointed Officer’s Canteen will be delivered to the California-based re-created British 33rd Regiment of Foot, which will use it to interpret historical foodways at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, the Huntington Library and Gardens, and Colonial Williamsburg, as well as other venues. Canteen contents provides service for six, with condiments, and will enable a Principal Cook to prepare a gourmet meal in the field.

Images below depict several views of open double locked Officer’s Canteen showing various custom made utensils: hand blown bottles, custom tin boxes for candles, spoons, tea and fire starting. Note also lidded pots, spider basting pan, blown wine glassware, table setting including candle stand/tinderbox with snuffer. An altogether striking display of hand worked dipped tinware employing construction details from 1776 documented originals made in Philadelphia, reproduced by Carl Giordano.

Interior of Officer’s Canteen showing wool covered partitions providing protection for (6) hand blown wine glasses and (2) hand blown wine decanters as well as other items. Note the individually hand blocked wallpaper complements the dark green felt wool interior.

Have a look at my museum-quality reproduction travel furnishings from 1740-1790. Including folding beds, chests, tables, chairs, wheelbarrows and all manner of accessories. I have been dedicated to meeting the needs of museums, historical sites, and officers in the field.

I will be attending some history venues and demonstrating horn making on the spring pole lathe.
