Hello to every body, I am looking for a particular type of cups for my cups and balls routine, I want the cups that were used many years ago in Europe like this:
http://www.cupsandballsmuseum.com/images/frenchtin4.jpg
I am not a collector so also drinking cups or similar cups even in plastic are ok (even if I prefer in metal), I live in Japan and I searched all the shops but they don't have nothing similar to that.
I have the tenyo plastic cups that looks similar but are too small, I want the regular size and that shape, anybody can give me an advise to where I can find something similar?

Thank you
Tom G

There is a guy selling some Johnny Paul cups in the items for sale area, they have the same look.
For new check out RNT2 as they have a couple of versions. For a cup that looks old there were postings about a guy that worked with tin and made old style looking cups. I think you have to contact him
about the cups used for magic. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheVillageTinner

About the old look is not so important, is the shape that I care a lot, the Johnny Paul are quite close to the cups I am looking for is only the part around the mouth that is not exactly how I was looking for, I would like to post in the right forum. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer even if I am in the wrong place.

Hi Mago Verza,

I second Tom G's recommendation for the Village Tinner. He makes cups that are exactly the shape you need.

This link will show you a set of his cups sold last year:

I bought a set for my collection although I have never used them in performance.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Doug

I bought a set of cups from Village Tinner. They are excellent work and at a better price than I expected. He offered me bright tinplate, darkened (“antique”) finish, or solid copper. So he was willing to do different options when I bought my cups a few years back.

Is he still making cups? I emailed a couple of time but never heard from him.

I really don't know, Jake. I hope so. It would be a shame if such cups were not available.

Yes, he still making cups. I just purchased his last set of his recent batch the other day. You will have to wait a few months if you want a set though.
