My fellow Cuppers,

I recently acquired a solid copper cup which was beautiful. Well....everything was perfect except for the bottom. The bottom was rough, unneven and it even has a nick. After close inspection....I was quite shocked to see white. Yes white. The solid cup was not as solid as I thought it would be. The copper chipped off. I can't tell who made the cup but I must say it is a beauty. Can anyone help me fix this problem? I would not dare use even the best looking copper paint on this beauty. Should I settle with a copper leaf? Or is it safe for me to take it to any metal shop and have them do it for me? I would not want to ruin the cup. I am very particular about details and even a minor flaw bothers me especially if it involves my climax ending where I normally have my audience have a closer look.

Thanks a lot in advance,

First I would ask the maker if he can fix it or replace it.

Have you talked to Jake? If anyone can fix it Jake can or atleast point you in the right direction.

It sounds like it's not solid copper, nor would I expect it to be. It would simply weigh too much. Since it's white underneath do you suppose it's filled with plaster of paris? It might be that your only choice is to paint it. I don't think the audience would care one way or another as long as you can show that it's plugged.

If it is plaster underneath a ceramic shop may have some copper plating to use on it. I know they do gold and silver but not sure about copper. Worth a look see.
Sometimes it seems there are more than one of me.

The best thing is to contact the manufacturer.

As it arrived in that condition, you should get a replacement. Ask them to inspect it before sending it to you.

we discussed this and I offered to replace the cup, but you refused to send it back. There was a metal bottom in place on this cup when it was shipped. If the insert was removed kindly ask customs for it back. The only thing I can do is braze a new plate in place. We had copper plated the bottom but was not pleased so we made an insert. I can turn this around immediately for you.
