Hi all,

I am looking for a set of traditional cups. Does anyone know where I can find a good set ?
I was looking for a Harrie's Bosco cups but it seems they are not available at that time...
Riser's traditional cups are out of sale...

Thanks for your help !
;)

Check out the RNT2 Traditional Cups; they are very close to the Riser Traditional Cups. I like them better than the Bosco Cups, I like the feel and wight of the RNT2 and Riser Cups better.. unless you need the larger size of the Bosco Cups.

Take care,
Bruce

Thanks for your prompt answers guys ;-)

I checked the RNT2 traditional cups, they look perfect in shape but I am looking for taller cups...
RNT2 traditional cups are about 9 cm high and I would like to find a set with is a little bit taller.

I think satin finish would be better for historical reenactment...

What's nice about the RNT 2 tranditionals is they are spun from heavy copper. Others sound hollow type sound and RNT 2 sounds solid.

I sold off my set of Bosco Cups because they were too light.
Also if you find a set of the Bosco Cups the protective finish needs to be removed so they can patina.

Here's another option. https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheVillageTinner?ref=pr_shop_more Look at the reviews below that show pictures of a couple of custom jobs he's done. And you can read more here: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......orum=115 I'm certain that Win could create them in any size you want.

Wow ! Thank you very much ekin... These cups are exactly what I am looking for.
My English is not very good : Is the maker of these cups a member of the forum ?
I would be very interested to be in touch with him !

No he is not a member of the forum... I have several of his Cups, they look great but again very light in weight.

Ok thanks ;-)

I presume they are very light in weight because they are made of thick sheet of metal... But our ancestors used that kind of cups...
Let's give a true ;-)

Thanks for your help guys !

I bring up the weight issue because if outside the wind can take them down or if your working surface is not stable they can also fall over.

Other than that they are great Cups.

Take care,
Bruce

I work out of doors a lot and use Bosco Cups and the Etsy Tin Cups and have never had wind or uneven ground topple them over. I've been using my Bosco's for over a decade and they've held up perfectly.

Do those Tin cups have a recessed "bottom"? (to set the balls in without them accidentally rolling out) I see every angle pictured but that one. Smile Nice looking cups though. Personally, I use 32 oz hard plastic (insulated) Red Solo Cups with Mike Rogers Baseballs and a 17" souvenir baseball bat for a wand. Baseball themed routine as you would imagine. (my cups are not recessed very much but they do have a ridge that works well with the balls).

Really Enjoy these cups.
