I would love to know what that big chop cup is. It was given to me by a friend who was cleaning out his magic closet many years ago. He had it all set up for Larry Jennings' routine, involving a shot glass and a silk.

Help, O Bill the Cupmaster?

Is it 3-1/8 inches tall, 3-1/16 inches across the opening, and 2-3/8 inches across the bottom?

I like the Harries Boscos...yes, they are light, but not feather-light. What's good about them is the height...they can be seen from just about anywhere. That's a set of them in the back to the left of my photos; the smaller, similar-style cups slightly in front of them are P&Ls.

Close, but not exactly:

Mouth opening ID = 3", OD = 3 1/4" (outside of lip to outside of lip)
Height = 3 1/4"
Bottom = 2 1/2" across

Might be a Morrissey. It's hard to tell from the angle of the photo. Bill Palmer will probably have the definitive answer.

Thanks, Bill.

I think Al Cohen must've sold a lot of Morrissey stuff back in the 80s and 90s, because that aluminum Monti-style set and the pocket chop cup are both Morrisseys. They came from Al's, as did that full-size chop cup (I'm pretty sure).

Francois, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I am completely in love with my Harries cups. They are just the right weight for the size of the cups. I first thought they might be too heavy, but once I had them, I found them to be perfect in weight.

Thank you Rick, and you all gentlemen, it seems that I was mistaken myself with the weight of these cups.
I am seriously going to think about buying a set. I like their "old style look".
They could almost came from a 19th century escamoteur table, who was performing
in Paris at "The Tuileries Garden".

Thanks for your help. Smile

Some of you guys have been around for so long to have these cups, geez, I can't wait for the time when I can say that I have whatever fancy cups.

Morrissey has been spinning cups continuously for about 50 years. They had the first combo sets, and they have managed to keep the prices low for a very long time.

One of the sets on the far left of my photos is a Morrissey combo set circa 1970. At the front of the group is a small Morrissey chop cup, about the same vintage.

Thank you Bruce.
I am now very impatient to add the "Bosco cups" from Harrie to my collection. I am waiting for a set very soon. Smile

Hello All,
I have read that many have received their long awaited Cups from RNT2, are their new pictures of your collections that you could share?

This is one of my favorite Posts.

Thanks,
Bruce

James…. You have a great collection of Cups, they all look so good. The Eric Hansen Chop Cups look fantastic and I enjoyed seeing your magic library.

Thanks for posting the picture,
Bruce

Thanks Bruce!

For the time being I keep my cups on the book shelf, but I am looking for a cabinet of some kind to give them a special place of their own. No luck so far...

Thanks again,

DC
