Purple Heart Chop Cup
Purple Heart Chop Cup (Large)
Purpleheart has a creamy white/gray sapwood but like its name suggests, the heartwood is a bright, striking purple when freshly cut, darkening into a deeper purple with age. It has a medium to fine texture with a lustre that ranges from medium to high; its grain is usually straight but can be wavy or irregular. Found in Central and South America, this exotic wood is a worldwide favourite.
Here at Five of Hearts we have featured this gorgeous exotic in our Harlequin Collection but have now added it as a ‘solo’ performer with this beautiful Chop Cup Edition new to the collection...
This Classic ‘Goblet’ Style Chop Cup features a number of soft rolled shoulders and ‘cuts’ to the outer edge with a defining sharp cut leading up to the flat base...remember this wood darkens with oxidisation so it will only improve with age...
Good handling in performance with a medium weight, the cup height is approximately 4” with a 3” opening.
*This issue comes with a set of our 30mm Chop Cup Ball Sets and 50mm Final Load Ball to complete the issue...
