Descriptions 

This Illy Cup is not available for purchase and were only given out as gifts to attendees of the 2,500$ a plate gala.

VIP guests were treated to a limited edition gift bag at the end of the night.

The bag includes a 8.8 oz can of Illy ground espresso coffee along with an Illy Espresso Cup & Saucer that was designed by Marina Abramovic. The "Spirit Cup" was part of her performance, with dozens of performers drinking out of the cups on stage. 

The cup has a small hole just below the brim which allows you to see the interior of the cup.  Abramovic explained that this relates to her childhood where you would share your coffee with the spirits.  The cup measures 2" Tall x 2 3/8" in diameter and the saucer is 4 3/4" in diameter.  The saucer reads "AN ARTIST SHOULD LOOK DEEP INSIDE HIMSELF FOR INSPIRATION.  THE DEEPER HER LOOKS INSIDE HIMSELF, THE MORE UNIVERSAL HE BECOMES.  THE ARTIST IS UNIVERSE."

The cup is very similar to Spirit Cup released on  May 4th 2002 to celebrate Charta's ten-year anniversary and "Book Expo America 2002". During this event, Marina Abramovic presented "Spirit Cooking" together with the Spirit Cup at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York (SoHo). 2002 cup is covered by 23,5 carate gold paint, 2011 cup is completely white.

Price on ebay between ~$350-$480 . It’s so rare for sale and will definitely be one of the most wanted cups of illy Art Collection.
