Looking for vintage cup

Hey,

Could you guys point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a vintage cup I saw online, it had metal strips welded together to create the cup, as opposed to a sheet of metal with holes in it. Any ideas? Allkinks didn't seem to have it.

I am attaching a page from the 1901/02 Wright & Ditson catalogue, which has an ad for a "Lower Abdoman Protector" that may be what you have in mind. It is made of six strips of metal, welded together to form a cup, and padded with wool. This is the earliest form of a cup that I have found. It only lasted a decade or so, and as far as I know, was never patented.

Thank you! That looks similar to what I remember, I'll post a photo if I come across what I saw again. Didn't know they went by "Lower Abdoman Protector" at one point.
