Antique Knox Silver Collapsible Travel Cup

$ 28.00
This antique collapsible travel cup is such a fun and unique find! With a patent date of 1897, this travel cup was made for cyclists and early automobile drivers to have a convenient way to bring a little sip of somethin' with them. The silver telescoping cup snaps into an oh-so-fancy case that is decorated with elegant filigrees and the word 'Knox', which refers to one of the earliest American auto manufacturers, The Knox Automobile Company, in business between 1900-1914. A truly unique and beautifully designed piece of history!

Condition:
➝ In very good condition for its age. Cup still telescopes smoothly and lid snaps securely in place. Cup shows minor signs of discoloration and wear from normal use. Lid shows a bit more wear, including a small spot of oxidization and wear to the silver finish. Overall, still a truly beautiful piece.

Measurements:
➝ case measures 2 inches in diameter, .75 inches tall
➝ expanded cup measures 2.25 inches tall 2 inches in diameter
