A lovely pair of brass-plated stag/deer stirrup cups, Mid Century. These cups features a solid brass stag/deer head and a brass-plated lower/cup. Heavier in weight, these stirrup cups are solid and well-crafted. The detailing is simply stunning, from each stag's horns to their fur. Truly a lovely pair of antique stirrup cups.

A quick summary on this type of cup and where the name originated: Stirrup cups were given to guests when they were leaving and had their feet in the leather stirrups (of the horse). It was also traditional to serve wine/port/sherry at the meet, prior to the fox hunt, so the stirrup cup was taken by a rider who was about to depart.

Condition: Good vintage condition with mild signs of general age. There's mild tarnish (which is part of their magic). Both rims are perfectly round. No dents. One of the rims has a tiny (pinhead size) rough spot on it. Both interiors are clean. In short, these stirrup cups are in good condition overall but do show mild/general signs of age. Truly a lovely set. They display beautifully.

Measurements: 5 1/2" tall by 3 1/4" in diameter

Hallmarks/era: None; Mid Century
