I love finding practical kitchen stuff at thrift stores. Certain vintage pieces are built sturdier than cheapo modern versions, and are obviously much cheaper!
These cute aluminum measuring cups fit the bill for me. There is a half price sale going on at my local charity thrift store this week, and I purchased this set for 25¢.
Each one is labelled accordingly, Fourth Cup, Third Cup, and Half Cup underneath the rim, and have the numeric fraction embossed on the bottom of the cup. They look so charming sitting on my vintage 1964 Joy of Cooking book!
The handles are small, sized to be held basically between your thumb and index finger when scooping up dry goods, but are well riveted to the cup. It's probably safe to say that these cups are from the 1950s. There is no rust nor dents... They are in great condition for being 60 years old!
I think I can find a spot for these new guys in my kitchen...
