We are pleased to offer a rare and unique collection of Paul Fox Cups for the cups and balls. All these cups were sold by Danny Dew and purchased directly from him in Phoenix, Arizona from the mid to late 1970’s. Until his death in 1996, Danny was the sole manufacturer and distributor of Paul Fox cups in the world. In one of his many advertisements in Genii Magazine, Danny wrote about his cups:
“Recognized the world over as the most perfectly designed cups for this great classic. Paul Fox cups used by Vernon, Skinner, Kaps, Brooke, Jennings, Cervon, Platt and most working magicians throughout the world.”
Chick cups are approximately 4 inches tall and will accommodate a baseball as a final load.
Paul Fox 1932-34 Chrome Plated Chick Cups – previously owned by Paul Fox. Danny Dew offered these cups for sale from a collection of props he acquired from directly from Paul Fox. They are spun out of brass and chrome plated. These very rare cups were manufactured in either 1932 or 1934 making these cups over 85 years old. Note the band near the bottom of each cup just above the lip. According to Danny Dew, Paul Fox would place double sided cellophane tape on his chick cups to improve grip.
The Paul Fox chrome plated chick cups are documented in the February 2001 The Linking Ring – the “Brother John Hamman” issue. There was a 6 page article by Dr. Ed Prendergast – “Paul Fox – The Great Innovator”. On page 69 is his history of the Paul Fox chick cups with a photo of the cups. The cups offered for sale here are identical to the photo in the article including the visible cellophane tape attached to the cups. These cups are in excellent condition for being over 85 years old. Also provided with the cups are 4 white soft rubber golf balls that Danny included in the original purchase. They are of unknown origin but are included.
