HISTORIES
Toleware is a painted + varnished tin item, typically household, made to imitate the imported Chinese lacquer items that were popular in Britain in the 18th Century (1700's). The painting process was developed in the 18th Century by Thomas Allgood in Wales, an important coal mining location. The paint was created with asphalt, a by-product of coal, mixed with shellac, and the mixture was applied to domestic objects made of the iron plate. This process was known as Japanning because it resembled the lacquer on Chinese trays, soon spread throughout Europe, especially in France!
