Americas:

2. Jim Riser (USA)
3. Joe Porper (USA)
4. Owen Magic (USA)
5. Pete Biro (USA)
6. Frank Starsinic (USA)
7. Viking (USA)
8. Magic Inc (USA)
9. Magic Makers incl Penguin (USA)
10. Johnson Products (USA)
11. Morrissey (Canada)
12. Bazar De Magia (Argentina)

Europe:
13. Brett Sherwood (UK)
14. Gary 'Animal' Knights (UK)
15. Colin Rose (UK)
16. Keith Bennett (UK)
17. Paul Starkey (UK)
18. Tim Star (Sweden)
19. El Duco (Sweden)
20. Harries Magic (Sweden)
21. Jimmy Bix (Germany)
22. Auke van Dokkum (Netherlands)
23. Magicmania (Italy)
24. Shaun Yee (Italy)

India & Australasia:
25. Dave Lord (Australia)
26. Uday (India)
27. Khin (Cambodia)
28. Magic Wagon (Thailand)
29. Mikame (Japan)

I know there are several others I've missed (Adams - there you go, remembered another already!). Bill has a drop-down list on the museum search page that would help.

I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I only lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three. Elayne Boosler

Thanks, Richard. That is quite a list. I did not know that there are so many cup makers around. Really appreciate your post.

You're welcome, James. Good to see you back.

Not all of them have webistes - some are manufacturers that sell via dealers and some just sell by word of mouth (eg Paul Starkey in the UK). There are also a few people who produce cups intermittently such as Klaus Kuhn in Germany and Adams Magic in Czechoslovakia.

Just realised there's another important one I've missed: Christian Jedinat in Germany.

A BIG "THANK YOU' again for those info. And all the while I thought there are just a handful of cup makers. Really didn't realize there are so many around. How ignorant of me.
