  • Details
    This pair are an estate item that came to me with no information about origin, but with a lot of innate charm built into their look and practicality. I think of the 1940s when I look at the black/white speckled finish on the enamel that has been applied over their base metal beginnings. Back in the old days the metal would have been tin. I'm not sure what it is here, but the light weightedness of it is true to tin.

    I think the original idea for this type of cup was that it would very durable, and yet light weight enough to tote around in the outdoors without burdening the camper/hunter/cowboy/railroad workman or whoever needed these light weight but durable qualities for a practical drinking cup to use in keeping hydrated anywhere and everywhere.

    These two are a nice generous 9 ounce capacity, and appear to have been stored rather than used, because they are in mint condition. They could function beautifully as drinking cups in many settings, but would also be adorable as nostalgic home decor pieces planted with some interesting succulents. They would be a fun thing to have around, or to give as a gift -- especially for someone whose family history might have involved these kinds of cups, or who is an avid camping and outdoors lover.
