Cups & Balls Sets and Chop Cups

Miniature Nickel Plated Cups

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAThese are of an unknown manufacturer (if anyone knows the manufacturer I’d love to hear from you). They are brass with nickel/chrome plating. The photos with the standard poker deck of cards gives you a good size reference. These cups are vintage, probably from the first half of the 20th Century. In good condition with some minor wear of the plating and age discoloration as to be expected on cups this old. Feel free to contact me for other photos if needed. Includes a set of four mini crocheted balls as pictured. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photos. $85.00

One set is solid red while the other has a black marbleized look. They are available for purchase for the pair at a special package price.

Unique Miniature Cups

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAGEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAI have not been able to find a set of cups just like these; they appear to be quite unique. Most likely from a mid to early 20th Century Magic Kit, they are in good condition with some minor dings. They are made of aluminum and you can see how small they are in the photo with the standard deck of cards. Includes a set of four vintage mini sponges (dried up) to use as balls as pictured.

Morrissey Combo Cups

This set is circa 1980’s and is complete with instructions, drawstring bag and four ball set (one chopped). The cups are aluminum and are approximately 3 ¼ inches tall with a mouth diameter of approximately 2 ½ inches. They are in very good condition with no dents. Because this is an early set Morrissey seems to have used a simple method of gaffing the Chop Cup of the set. If you look closely into the cup you can see that they have spun an insert that has been fitted into the cup to cover the necessary magnet. Not the most artistic method of gaffing the cup but it works fine. Click on the thumbnail to enlarge photo. $25
