Gothic Chop Cups  - magic

A truly collectable item. These pocket-sized props have a very unique feel and they will certainly add a curiosity factor to your existing chop cup routine.

"The origins of the items cannot be confirmed but is said that perhaps they once belonged to the Witches of Pendle Forest, Lancashire England. Convicted of witchcraft on August 20th 1612 at Lancaster Castle and hanged from the gallows on the moors above the tow the next day. Their crimes included laming, causing madness and witchcraft."

The cousin of the standard Cups and Balls, Chop Cup routines are performed with just one cup, and the mechanical construction of the cup allows you to perform varied effects, visual penetrations, productions and vanishes of a ball from under the cup in a simpler yet very effective way.

The gimmicked cup has a magnet inside and when a magnetic ball is used, the ball will stick inside to the top until the cup is set down with a little bump to the table, which releases the ball. Used to show no ball beneath the cup, with a magical appearance of the ball at will when the cup is lifted after the 'bump'.

This miniature set is perfect for any performer who likes to delve into the more gothic performance style.

Package includes:

  • Gothic Chop Cup
  • Gruesome wand
  • Black carry pouch (approx 20cm x 15cm)
  • 1 'chopped' ball
  • 1 regular ball

The cups are approximately 6cm high and 4.5cm in diameter, and the wand is around 18cm long and the balls 2cm in diameter.

Please note: This is a miniature 'pocket-sized' set, not full-size.
