That certainly is fine!  Is that the same size as the one I have?  I may need another...hmmmm,  I may have a problem. Oh, that is for a gentleman, No problem.

Mitch,

Beautiful work !!!  Both the silver work and the engraving are superb.

Do you roll the upper lip ?  Or is it a separate piece silver soldered in place ?

Thanks Dave

On these I make the lip(top and bottom and handle) from drawn wire from ingots cast in shop.I've done rolled edges but they take a lot more time which raises the cup cost .

Thanks Mitch.  I can certainly understand why the rolled lip takes so much longer to do....and the wire lip looks great.

 Hey Mitch,
 Maybe you can put a little bit of this in that cute little cup here in a couple of weeks!

Looking forward too it!!!! It's only proper that I test the cup out( strictly in the name of quality assurance  8) 8) ) before it gets shipped to the new owner after the CLA.
