There is an interesting set of cups which belonged to Herb Zarrow on the "big auction site". Also a set of Indian cups. I'd be interested in hearing comments about these from some of you very knowledgeable folks.

If I was still collecting, I'd buy both sets.

Pete did you ever sell off your collection? Did I miss the sale?

Interesting cups for sure. Those Indian cups are modified elephant bells. Looks like they used a drill press to create the divots in the tops. Nice.

I'm not sure what the traditional cups are. I think they may be silver-plated Tannen's Stubby Cups. I don't believe they are P&L.

The Indian cups are very likely elephant bells. Probably made by Sarna (the bells, not the conversion), who made lots of those during the 1950's and 1960's.
