'Naked' extraction pressure gauge for La Pavoni

One can use this beautiful set as a device to simply admire for its nerdiness and super smart engineering, a jewel adorning the vintage machine. Or, if one uses it while being observant of the pressure indication, it can teach one, over time, what shots one actually prefers and it also tells one if the extraction pressure one applies with is really nice and gradual, without hits and drops and ups and downs that one normally does not 'see'.

Who makes those espresso cups? And what's the height of the cup without the saucer. Wanting to see if it can fit under CT2 and scale and still have portafilter visible.

The yellow / green cup is from a pottery village in Spain. I wish I had more! Or do you mean another specific cup from above ?
