Vintage Collapsible Metal Cup :: Victorian Pocket Tumbler :: Antique Travel Drink Ware :: Initial K :: Silver Metal Telescoping Cup for Picnics :: Camping Chic

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This vintage telescoping collapsible cup may be from a bygone era, but it's still quite functional and elegant today. This one is engraved with a large "K" and a pair of tiny "S's" on the lid. It was among my mother's belongings, but as her initials don't include "K" or "S" I'm not quite sure how she came to have it!

It measures 2-1/8" in diameter. When collapsed it's just under 3/4" high, and when opened up it's not quite 2-1/2" tall. The bottom is marked "Made in U.S.A" and "Pat'd Feb. 23, 97" (by the way, that would be a reference to 1897, not 1997).

The metal is not silver or even silver plate as far as I can tell. Both the cup and the lid are in nice "vintage" condition and it's still quite usable. The metal has a little pitting on it (the photos actually make the imperfections look more significant than they really are).
