Traditional Tapered Cups | Copper | Bright Nickel

The Traditional Tapered cups are among the most classic designs of cups for cups and balls performers. One really cannot consider themselves a collector unless they have at least one set of traditional tapered cups. The tapered cup design is the style of cups you see street performers of the 18th century performing within paintings or drawings from that period. They may have used tin or wood cups in those days, but they certainly didn't have a cup of the caliber of our Traditional Tapered cups. Quaint illustrations of cups and balls sleights are in Diderot's Encyclopedia, ca 1750 - 1775. These illustrations include traditional tapered cups. One will notice however that there has been a vast improvement added to our 21st century Traditional Tapered cups over the designs seen in vintage 18th century illustrations. Most notably, the skirt is now much larger, which allows for greater attic space in the cups when they are nested.

Craftsmanship

Each cup is hand spun from the original RNT II tooling in .064 copper and plated with a Bright Nickel exterior and a Bright Nickel finish in its interior.
