|The double-handled cup, shown at left, was for sale on ebay in March of 2004. I contacted the seller, Rachel Osman of Stover, Missouri. She graciously allowed me to use the photo of the cup on the website. She said she bought the cup in 2003 from a man who lived in Carnegie, PA. The description she used on ebay is as follows: "4 1/8" across (not including the handles) by 2 1/4" tall Double Handled Cup in the Ornaments Pattern. (The same pattern was used by the MKT Railroad) Side marked: The William Foor Hotels. Bottom marked in green: Albert Pick & Company Chicago, M, China, L. NO Chips, Cracks or Crazing. A couple of very light use marks".|

The item sold for $9.99 on May 28, 3009. Images used by permission of seller, Rick McKita.
