Stamped tin ceilings were mass produced in the U.S. from 1839 to 1901 with rope drop hammers and cast iron molds that were used to stamp the sheets of tin individually.
During this process, metal was placed between two interlocking tools. Rope or chain was used to lift the ram, or the top tool, and then dropped down onto the bottom die. That smashed the metal underneath and permanently embedded a pattern into the tin. To give the ceilings the appearance of being hand carved or molded plaster, they were often painted white.
Such ceilings could often be found in living rooms and parlors, as well as some commercial businesses.
Today, you can get the look of a stamped tin ceiling for a fraction of the time and money. Fasade Faux Tin Ceiling Panels add instant drama that leaves a lasting impression. These decorative ceiling panels can either be glued up or installed into almost any lay-in ceiling grid system. They're available in 2'x2' and 2'x4' tile sizes.
