These cups are exactly the same shape as the sterling silver planished champagnes except they are not planished; they are silver plated and gilded on the inside. These straight sided cups are conical in shape and stack rim to rim which means they take up very little room in their case, so the case is smaller than the other champagne cup cases.
The cups hold 225 mls when full and stand 8cms high and the top has a diameter of 7.5 cms. As the cups stack so neatly, it is possible to get a good quantity of cups into a relatively short case so I can offer the option to have 8, 10, 12, 14 or 16 straight sided cups, all contained in one case which is very handy for larger parties.
All of our cups come with a custom made leather case. There are now a large number of shoots that use our cases and cups and their robustness and quality is clear to see, especially when you consider the age of some sets, in some instances the sets are well over ten years old.
Our leather lined case is easily cleaned and wiped down should the remnants of a drink spill into it between elevenses and the end of the day.
The cups are made up of bridle leather and a pigskin lining. The outer of the case is a dark Havana coloured bridle leather and the lining of the case is a coloured pigskin with it’s finished side towards the cups for durability. The build process is a mix of machine stitching and hand box stitching on the case ends. This makes for a very strong and robust product.
Case and Cup Finishing
We can also personalise the case by embossing the case with initials, a name, or a shoot name.
In addition to this we can engrave the cups with initials, a crest, or an image. If you are interested engraving the silver cups please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the requirement and we will generate a quote for this bespoke service.
