    I picked this up a while ago. I had long admired the novel idea of a collapsible cup, but I waited to find one for a low price before picking one up. It's lost a lot of its nickel plating, but I can re-plate it here at home.
    While the patent is 1890s, I'd think this one is a bit newer-- after 1900. Currently it sits on display on a corner.
    My mom related to me that she had a green plastic one when she was a girl.

      Good find SpiritBear! :^D I had an aluminum one, as a child for Scouts, but my parents kept some of the plastic collapsible cups in the 57' Sierra Dodge station wagon, for road trip drink shares! Wish I had that car now! :^)

      Buckethead, I enjoy it as is for now, but I'll probably end up replating it. They're not rare or valuable, so it won't lose anything to the world.

      Billretirecoll, I'm sure you can find one somewhere!
