Paul Fox Chick Cups by Rings-N-Things

The Paul Fox Chick Cup is among the first 20th century cups designed for street and stage performers. These terrific cups were named for the fact that the cups were required to be big and heavy enough to prevent a small baby chick from moving or tipping over the cups when they were concealed beneath them. To date, these cups still remain a popular and sought after style of cups for the cups and balls performer and collector. The Paul Fox Chick Cup design is a TALL cup, but a wide mouth cup. The height of the cup is so impressive that when you park your final loads on top of the cups it makes a wonderfully elevated display. When originated, the cup design was groundbreaking in that it featured a curved transition from the beads to the saddle that tall straight-walled tapered cups didn't have at the time. Three center beads accent the cup, forming the skirt and give the cup an elegant look. The attic space is huge.

Since its original conception and manufacture, many magicians have declared their appreciation and preference for this set of cups, but alas because the cup has been so rarely produced in recent years, most sets in existence sit unused in collections.

Paul Fox Mini Cups Recommended Balls

We feel it is important to mention that two different size balls can be used with these cups depending upon your needs. 7/8" diameter balls CAN be used, which gives you a larger ball to manipulate and better performance of some standard moves and sleights with the cups, but you cannot nest three 7/8" balls between the cups. If you need to nest 3 balls between the cups then you will have to use 3/4" balls. We prefer to use the larger 7/8" balls, you may prefer otherwise. Both are listed here for your convenience.
