This is very possible.  The ME word "tinkere" (our modern tinker) denotes an 
itinerent tin smith who repairs pots and pans.  The word may trace back into 

Tinning for decoration has been done since Roman times and tinware has been 
around since the early 17th Century, but I haven't encountered much about 
transitional work.
