Our goal is to create the best bronze cup ever. Period. 77 years without improvements was too long for us
Our original idea was to use a multi-metal design. Our research showed that copper had been combined with brass, bronze, silver, stainless steel and iron for centuries. Copper and brass together are like peanut butter and jelly or baseball and beer. Then, for weeks on end, we analyzed and studied the shape of the cups. We studied ancient mugs and mugs found all over the world. However, it was a discovery from the bottom of the sea that produced the spark that led to the solid brass base. It had multiple uses, but "good looks" had to be at the top of the list. We then focused on the lip and the handle, which itself absorbed over 100 hours of work.
Keep reading about everything we've improved and we think you'll find the results to be well worth the effort.
A handle, is a handle, right? Not to us.304 stainless steel are closely related, however, keeping the handle comfortable while the cup enjoys instant cold temperatures.
The handle is the most important functional part of the mug; it had to look great, feel great, and be functional. So we started drawing and shaping, then drawing and shaping again.
After drawing 45 diagrams, we created 17 different mockups by hand. This resulted in 4 pre-production prototypes, resulting in a stunning handle.
Check out its perfect line proportions, feel how it feels in your hand, and lift the cup to your lips ..... .AAAhhhhh, that's fantastic! We think you'll agree that it's the best handle ever made.
With all the improvements, we made the unwavering decision to have your drink cradled in the arms of stainless steel. We've also made it tarnish resistant, which means that by following the included care instructions, you can keep it tarnished longer than ever.
304 stainless steelThis base looks simple, but it does a lot.
First, it's sturdy and heavy like the keel on a sailboat, keeping the glass from spilling your carefully crafted, delicious beverage. Second, according to Rockwell standards, stainless steel is 550% more resistant to tingling and scratching than copper, which means it's much more durable and will wear better than copper. Third, stainless steel is one of the best, if not the best, metal for engraving. This mug offers plenty of room for engraving! The diameter is just over 3.5 inches and the vertical rim has a circumference of nearly 12 inches, making this mug amazingly customizable!
It looks spectacular from all sides!
