LAY OFF OF GAZZO! he is the epitome of everything condemned by the general populous of this forum and is lauded for it. I myself love his horribly wrong and incorrect style of performance.

Aside from that statement, I love those cups and would sell a child (Wait till I have on I don't love as much as the others) for a set. I look to the Sherwood site whenever I feel the need for masochism. Also I look to Mr. Palmer's museum when I want to go crazy with lust. I have to beg my wife incessantly for a set of any Sherwood's, I say: "As the man of the house I order you to give me permission to buy those cups", hasn't worked so far.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

My Foxy cups are real babes!

(I think the last time I heard a pretty girl referred to as a "fox" was in 1979.)
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

The cups don't matter though I like certain ones better.... You use the ones you have and you do with what you can, and then you have favorites. Just like everything else in life. Some of them are prettier than others and some of them just get the job done. If you are lucky, they are both pretty and purposeful..... these are my Sherwoods....

Are Fox cups made using real foxes? Perhaps that is why they aren't made anymore. Animal rights......? Smile


If you're worried about those poor, innocent foxes, maybe you'd want to consider the Phoenix cups as an alternative. They raise birds from the dead ........ Very PC. Smile Smile

My Phoenix cups still look pretty dead. Maybe the Fox cups got into the "coup" they come in................

I liked them in silver so much, I also picked up a set in gold. The bad thing is... they are so nice, I'm afraid to use them.
POOF!

I'll be back in the cup biz next year. I'm going to redesign all my cups and start again with some new Kiwi stamp in them to mark my move to NZ.
Gazzo cups should be available via penguin soon. My other designs will not be.

Gary,
I'm glad you're still around! What's this I hear about you returning to the U.K.? Or was that just for a visit?

I'll be looking forward to your Kiwi line of cups. If they're anything like your previous cups I know you'll do well with them.

I'm curious. You don't have to answer if you don't want to(or not allowed to talk details). Will you be spinning the Gazzos for Penguin?

I look forward to seeing your new cups, Gary! As with Dave, I'd be interested in hearing how, and where, you're getting on.

Since this post was started talking about the engraved Sherwood cups, I thought it would be of interest to point out that, at least for a little while, they will be very scarce. Brett is currently out of stock because of the price of silver. I've always been very curious as to what number in the 1000 cup run is he on. I'm also surprised that the gold plated versions are still available, as they were available in smaller numbers- 150 sets I think. I've owned my set of sterling silver engraved cups for a few years now, they are my most prized "magic" possession, I think I have set 72 of 1000.

James Riser has always said it best, and I'm paraphrasing here, "if you want a set, don't wait because they probably won't be available tomorrow." That very thing has happen to me so many times I can't count. "Oh, I'll buy it next time I see it" then I never see it again!

When you get into the collecting game as late as I did, you learn patience. I have been waiting for two particular sets for a couple of years now. I finally got them.

They will be up in the museum RSN.

Indeed the Sherwood Cups have no equal. I am aware of (2) collections in the U.S.A. that feature one of each style Brett offers, one of these collections also features at least one of Brett's Chop Cups.

I have:
Smooth Silver 3 of 10
Smooth Silver Gold Interior 2 of 10
Smooth Silver All Gold Plated 7 of 10
Silver Engraved 100 of 1000 Brett felt this number significant as our initials are the same.
Silver Engraved With Gold Highlights and Interior 39 of 250
Silver Engraved All Gold Plated 22 of 150
Smooth Brass
Smooth Copper

I'm done bragging, I like my Cups!! Smile

I have to second that, Bill. Sherwoods are wonderful cups. And Sherwood is a really nice guy -- no BS.

(I meant that in the nicest way possible.)

Gary, are the Gazzo cups which will be sold by Penguin be small or large top?

I heard this from the source. Gazzo hates the small tops!

No wonder. When he started with his PF?DD cups, they had a larger dimple in the bottom. This was gradually closed by Gazzo pounding on them.

Hey, it happens!

But if Gazzo hated small tops, why did he let Gary Animal associate his name with the first run of the Gazzo street cups?
