You'll really enjoy the clever shape of this Cup!



The classic cups and balls effect using just one cup and one ball- manufactured in gorgeous spun aluminum and shaped like a graceful chalice cup!
This is a collector quality piece of magic!
What a great gift for the magician in your life- or even yourself!

The ball can be made to magically jump from the hand to the cup and back again.
You can make the ball disappear, or change it into something else- even an oversized knit ball!
A great routine can climax with the production of a large piece of fruit from under the cup!
This cup has an oversized mouth opening, so many effects are possible.

Many professional magicians actively collect different sets of cups and chop cups, especially treasuring the cups with unusual shapes- like this one.
This chalice cup will not only give you many years of performance pleasure, but it will also look fantastic on your library shelf!
It's definitely a "show off"!

For more detailed instruction and routines, see the Chop Cup Book.

Replacement or extra balls are also available.
Our Closeup Pads make a nice performance surface.
And a Deluxe Magician's Wand helps in the smooth performance of certain routines.

About Ickle Pickle Spun Aluminum Products

For decades, magician Steve Bender and his company, Ickle Pickle Magic, manufactured hundreds of innovative magic effects.
Among their best products were the world class spun aluminum effects, like their Lota Bowl and Zombie Ball.
Recently, Steve retired and sold his business to another enthusiastic magic entrepreneur.
At the same time, Ickle Pickle's metal engineer retired, the man responsible for manufacturing those spun aluminum pieces.
Many Ickle Pickle products will still be available, BUT THE SPUN ALUMINUM EFFECTS ARE NO LONGER BEING MADE.
We purchased all of their remaining spun aluminum inventory.
We have VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES of these items.
This product is one of those limited Ickle Pickle effects.
When we sell out- this item is GONE!
