This is a replica of the edible cup buttercup that Willy Wonka eats from the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. These are expensive to make which explains the high price. They are hand made so up close you will see some imperfections.
**THIS IS NOT EDIBLE**
You can drink out of it, however, I’m not sure how long it would hold up if you did drink out of it. It’s made for display and depending on which one you get, it may wobble a bit. I have not had any of these fade on me, but I would suggest keeping these in a display case just to be safe.
