2.02:10 Tin communion cup
--This cup probably dates back to the first Indian Creek Brethren meetinghouse. Clarence believes that most of Indian Creek congregation's "ecclesiastical paraphernalia"-Love Feast ware and mugs (creamware), demijohn, communion cup-dates back to the first meetinghouse, about 1780-1800. Clarence notes that this is an early type of tin, with a domed bottom and soddered joint.
--This particular cup was sold in 1953 when the congregation was building an addition and had a large auction of many of the things from the attic. The auction was held on Clarence's father's lot. Lincoln Nyce was concerned that many of the congregation's treasures would be lost, and he said that someone from the congregation should buy this communion cup. There is a another cup similar to this one in Indian Creek Church's collection.
