A stunning set of 6 silver-plated stirrup cups by Italy, REM. These stirrup cups were made around the same time as the GUCCI stirrup cups (which were also made in Italy). These silver-plated cups are extremely heavy in weight and very well crafted. They have the most incredible detailing...from the deer's antlers to the hounds nose and ears to the bore's tusks. And when turned upside down, each cup rests on it's head. These came from a private seller and have been stored away for decades. Truly a breath-taking set that has a magical feel them.

Set includes 6 stirrup cups: 1 hare, 1 hound, 1 horse, 1 fox, 1 stag, 1 bore

Hallmarks: "Italy REM" can be found on each cup

Measurements: Approx 5 1/2 to 6" tall (depending on the cup/animal) x 3" in diameter

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition. We're pretty Type A about the exact condition of our vintage pieces, so here's a cup by cup summary:

Hare - Near pristine
Horse - Good vintage condition (the silver-plating is pristine) however there's one tiny "ding" on the back upper right side. It's shallow and was impossible to capture in a photo but this cup does have one, shallow ding
Fox - Good condition with very mild surface wear to the exterior in a few areas
Stag - Good condition with some subtle but noticeable wear to a few spots on one side of the cup (see photo #3) that will likely not polish away
Bore - The exterior is near pristine; however there are "age spots" to the bottom interior that will likely not polish away (see photo #8)
Hound - Near pristine. There's one tiny (and we mean tiny, about 1/16 of an inch) mark on the lower cup

In short, this set of stirrup cups is in very good vintage condition overall. Some of the heads/upper areas have a tad more tarnish than others (please note: we do not polish our vintage pieces as some buyers are very particular about as is condition). Truly a stunning and magical set.
