I just received a cool little set of Ickle Pickle Mini Brass cups from Epiphany. They are great little cups (and only the second set of brass cups I have.)

I don't know how they compare with the current run (perhaps someone could let me know please?) but these have a reasonable heft to them being only 2 1/4" tall. Another plusisthat they really don't look likethey could cover a golf ball so they are quite deceptive.

All in all I really like these little cups.

I posted a few pics if anyone wants to check them out.

I'm not usually a fan of single beaded cups but these little fellas are really growing on me....

Those are nice little cups. I don't think there is a "current" run of them. Ickle Pickle has cut back on their copper and brass cups recently.

Thanks Pete ;) (I think!) :goof:

Tom, Bill, thanks, I wondered because I've only really seen Aluminium cups from them recently.

I tried to get them to make some copper minis for me, but they declined.

Bill, that's too bad, surely it wouldn't have been too much trouble for them to do that? I know Epiphany was selling some but I think they went. I promise if I come across any I will resist the temptation and send them your way...
