Museum Quality Fur Trade Canoe Cup Tasse D'eau or Water Cup with Belt

Details


Description
Canoe Cup with Barrel Toggle ("aka Noggin")
CUP IS READY TO BE PERSONALIZE WITH YOUR OWN TRADEMARK

Grab a drink with our hand-carved Canoe Cup (aka "Noggin").

This is a faithful reproduction of an actual Museum of the Fur Trade specimen used by the early Voyagers. The barrel-shaped toggle and thong allow you to easily secure it with your belt, while the hardwood cup is approximately 5-1/4" long.

Wooden canoe cups were a practical accessory that wilderness travelers used to dip drinking water from a lake or stream before water quality was a concern. They were typically made from a tree burl, often maple, that was hollowed out and shaped with a jackknife or crooked knife. The naturally round portion of the burl served as the cup, while wood extending from the burl served as an integral handle. The handle was usually punctured or carved with an open slot for fitting a leather thong, braided cord, so that the cup could be attached to the traveler’s belt – thus the alternative name for canoe cups as “belt cups.”
The majority of canoe cups hail from Quebec, and less commonly from Maine and the Maritime Provinces. The strong Quebecois tradition of crafting canoe cups has roots in the early fur trade as French voyageurs came into contact with Native tribes and adopted their practice of making drinking cups through out the northwoods and waterways.

Natives and voyageurs tucked the toggles under their belts, letting the cups dangle from their waists so they were at hand when thirst struck. They would dip the cups in the water, drinking straight from the lake or river.

THIS CUP IS READY TO BE PERSONALIZE WITH YOUR OWN TRADE MARK AS HISTORICALLY IT WAS DONE CENTURIES AGO.
