Ok memorys coming back....It's a Picture on the wall behind...of a press machine (+/-)Hi, I guess it is already written down somewhere but turns out is difficult to find. I see that most K Istanbul eras have somewhat different bell shapes. I wondered if the bells were shaped in all old K eras in "pre-modern turkish way" like it can be seen in The Cymbal Book https://books.google.de/books?id=bR4LAQAAQBAJ&pg=PA136&lpg=PA136&dq=zildjian+k+istanbul+cupping&source=bl&ots=Flmqc8Z1i-&sig=ACfU3U2Ck0MdBNU0NhfghkCa1hCfU87yHw&hl=de&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiHl5LE6pLxAhXSGewKHbwqD6kQ6AEwEnoECAYQAw#v=onepage&q=zildjian k istanbul cupping&f=false = hammered into form by hand or if there was some kind of (non-electric) machine used ( /closer to the Keropes) and then the bells were just hammered afterwards. Thank you for your help.
It's in the picture behind on wall - two men standing- likely maybe an early 60s picture;
but I'll tell ya what; basically three eras of Cups
basically very consistent thru an era;
Old Stamps/ Intermediates/ New Stamps
-Old Stamps- low and wide
-Intermediates- almost A-like high and (almost press-like) full- shoulder
-New Stamps- back down to low & not quite-as wide as old stamp /less consistent on some rides
