Lord Google had a fit and the Bay crawled up it's own jacksy. Only this human fountain of infinite knowledge for old tat could possibly help ID this lovely Ti bottle cage.

All I know, is they are from around 1997 and apparently from the USA around the dawn of Ti lovelyness. They are well built on what I would call an artisan level with a rather unique design and clearly hand welded. I've got a lovely pair of them....(oo err) and thinking they would look smart handlebar mounted on the right build. Needless to say they weigh naff all and have more character than plastic plopp.

Anyone ID them please?

I know what that is - it's my next cage, when you sell it to me! :D

Remember those vividly but can't recall who made them ..try asking in the MTB forum as well, I think it was sold as an MTB cage.

edit: is it not possibly a short-lived model from King?

I think you have bought a fancy cockring with ball separators there. Will look good holding a water bottle too

I think we have a positive ID here, they look to be a King 'Rib Cage':

I remember the cage. My cousin bought 2 on eBay back in the days. They were described as school project.
