I found these two drinking cups at an antique store yesterday.
The smaller one is 2" in diameter and stands 2-3/4" when opened.
The larger one with a foot is 2-1/2" in diameter and stands 3" tall when opened.
Are these for the ladies when riding out of town for a picnic outing when riding safeties?

Some folks replied to me showing their cups of this style WITH LEATHER COVERED CASES!

Well, I returned to the antique store today, and sure enough, in my haste the other day, I hadn't realized those brown, round cases had cups inside! So, two more came home with me today along with one hiding in a screwed-together metal case.

The cup on the left is amazingly clean and shiny! Probably from being left in the cover, I suppose. The center cup is similar to the smaller one I purchased the other day.

So, now I'm a cup collector! Actually, I hope to offer several of these at the Memorabilia Meet in March. I'll keep one or two for a quick drink 'out on the road'.
