Riser Cups Collection by Jim Riser(c. 2002) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Unsurpassed Quality from a Top-Notch Craftsman
These are the famous Riser Cups in brilliant copper. Left to right, in the first image, is the Traditional, Standard, and Mini sized cups. He also makes a Jumbo, which I decided not to get. He does not apply any “finish” to the cups so they will develop with time a beautiful patina. The Traditional is the heaviest of the lot. The Traditional and the Mini pictured are actually prototypes I bought from Jim through ebay. John Mendoza beat me on the prototype of the Standard with a “Buy It Now”, but Jim quickly had a final model spunned and shipped to me within a week of the closing of the auction…such great service from a very nice man!
Effect: The cups are a joy to have and handle. Copper is probably the best metal for the Cups and Balls. There is such a beautiful color to the metal and tarnishes nicely, unlike brass. Engraved inside each cup in small letters is “James P Riser” so you are guaranteed its authenticity. These will definitely become collectibles in the future, so I recommend you head on over to his website and get on his waiting list, to get your hands on one of these cups. Yes, demand definitely exceeds supply. Thanks, Jim, for your friendly service and for offering the magic community such great products.
