During the WW II Era, tin ceiling tiles went out of favor as metals were conserved for the war effort, and other types of ceilings were promoted. By the 1950s and 1960s, acoustic drop ceiling tiles and dry wall dominated the marketplace and could be found in homes, hotels and buildings. Because original tin ceiling tiles have such pretty designs and craftsmanship, many people like to collect these lovely antique pieces. Collectors enjoy finding tiles of different sizes, as well as seeking out tiles with unique patterns, shapes, colors and symbols.
If you have a room that could benefit from a ceiling light but there's no existing fixture, you shouldn't let that discourage you. Have a professional contractor or electrician come in and give you an estimate of the time and cost involved. You won't want to do this type of job yourself. Not only is working with high-voltage wiring dangerous, it's often prohibited in some areas. You'll have to check with your local building authorities about any code requirements before you begin.
Other crafters have had great success selling frames made out of old tiles and inserting a canvas with florals and other images. While many current artists are discovering a variety of ways to use old ceiling tins and other salvage materials, the Pennsylvania Dutch have crafted objects from tin for a very long time. For example, they are noted for creating barn stars out of old tin roof material. Many stores specializing in country gifts sell reproduction stars.
