    Cup Sizes: The picture of the 3 cups together shows (From Left to Right) the Large, the Small and the Rum Ration Cup. Size and capacity are approximate and will vary somewhat in the hand made cups.

    Tin Cup, Small - Standard: 1 2/3 cup / 13+ ounce /  2 5/8" wide plus handle X 3 1/2" tall. Although it is called small, it is a medium size cup. It is much smaller than the large cups and is more of the size of a normal coffee mug.

    Tin Cup, Small - Seamless Stainless Steel: 1 cup /  3" wide plus handle X 3" tall. Although it is called small, it is a medium size cup. It is much smaller than the large cups and is more of the size of a normal coffee mug. It is made from a non shiny stainless steel so it will will not corrode or rust and seamless so it won't eventually leak at the bottom.

    Tin Cup, Small - H.D.: 1 1/2 cup /  12 ounce /  3 1/8" wide plus handle X 3 1/4" tall. Although it is called small, it is a medium size cup. It is much smaller than the large cups and is more of the size of a normal coffee mug.

    Tin Cup, Medium - Seamless Stainless Steel: 1 1/4 cup / 10 ounce /  3-1/2" wide plus handle X 31/2" tall. It is smaller than the large cups and is more of the size of a normal coffee mug. It is made from a non shiny stainless steel so it will will not corrode or rust and seamless so it won't eventually leak at the bottom.

    Tin Cup, Large - Standard: 4 cup / 32 ounce / 4 1/2" wide plus handle X 4 3/8" tall. This is the large tin cup that is carried by reenactors.

    Tin Cup, Large - Seamless Stainless Steel: 4 cup / 32 ounce / 4" wide plus handle X 4" tall. It is made from a non shiny stainless steel so it will will not corrode or rust and seamless so it won't eventually leak at the bottom.

    Tin Cup, Large - H.D.: 3-3/4 cup / 30 ounce / 4 1/4" wide plus handle X 4 3/8" tall. This is the heavy duty large tin cup that is carried by reenactors.

    Copper Cup, Small - H.D.: 1-3/4 cup / 14 ounce / 3-1/4" wide plus handle x 3-1/4" tall. This is the same style as the large tin cup that is carried by reenactors, except that in the smaller size and made from copper. The water spots shown are not included.

    Copper Cup, Large - H.D.: 3-1/2 cup / 28 ounce / 3-7/8" wide plus handle X 4" tall. This is the same style of cup as the standard tin cup that is carried by reenactors, except that it is made from copper. The water spots shown are not included.

    Covered Tin Cup (Corn Boiler): This is the large cup that is carried by reenactors, except it has a lid and bale so that it can be use like a pot.

    Travel Cup: This is a collapsible travel cup with leather case. I believe that this type cup does go back to the American Civil War and I know they go back to the 1880's, but the snap on the case would be 1900's on. The case is 2 1/2" in diameter and 1" tall. The cup is 2" in diameter at the mouth, 11/16" tall collapsed and 2 1/8" expanded, with a capacity of 1/4 cup or 2 ounces. (These are somewhat smaller than my originals.) ONLY 1 Left.

    Tipples for Four: This is a Set of 4 travel cups with a leather case. The case is 2 1/8" wide and 3 1/4" tall. Each cup is 1 5/8" wide at the mouth, 1 5/8" tall and holds 1 ounce. ONLY 1 Left.

    Caution: these reproduction items made from TIN, Steel or Stainless Steel.
ONLY the stainless steel is dishwasher or soaking safe.

    For items that are NOT stainless steel:

  1. DO NOT wash these items in a dishwasher.
  2. DO NOT leave them to soak in the sink.
  3. DO NOT leave them to drip dry.
    These items need to be kept dry. If they are allowed to have water on them for a
period of time, THEY WILL RUST. Once they have rusted they will rust much quicker the next
time, UNLESS you remove ALL the rust and discoloration. However, he rust is not harmful
and is 100% authentic.
