Whitesmith

Tinsmith; worker of iron who finishes or polishes the work


OR

Whitesmith
There is one common, and two less common definitions of a whitesmith:
1.A whitesmith is another name for tinsmith. A worker in tin and light metals one who makes pots and pans and similar items from tin plate.
2.A whitesmith is also the name for someone who finished small items made from tin and other light metals. Often these were polished to fine finish to resemble silverware.
3.Whitesmith was also sometimes used for a silversmith who produced work without a recognised mark.


I had never heard of a Whitesmith before :confused:
