A stunning set of 4 silver-plated stirrup cups from Sheffield, England. Extremely heavy in weight, these stirrup cups are solid and nothing short of magical. The set includes a turkey, a deer/stag, a hound, and a rabbit. They have the most incredible detailing...from the deer's antlers to the hounds "fur". And when turned upside down, each cup rests on it's head/ears/antlers. Circa 1940s.

Hallmarks: "Sheffield England" can be found inside the cups

Measurements: Approx 5" tall x just shy of 2/4" in diameter

Condition: Good vintage condition with signs of age/wear. These cups display beautifully but do show a few signs of age/wear. We're pretty Type A about the exact condition of our vintage items, so here's a cup by cup summary:

- Turkey: it appears the "beak" of the turkey is flatter than it should be (possibly a manufacturer's flaw, see photo #3); there's also an "age spot" at the base of the cup
- Stag/deer: this cup is the only one that has a section where the brass is showing through the silver-plating, giving it a "bronze" tone (see photo #4)
- Hound: there's one area of the rim that isn't perfectly round (it was tough to capture in a photo, see photos #7 and #8); it has a small "flared ding" on a small area
- Rabbit: excellent condition

In short, these vintage stirrup cups show a few signs of age/wear and display beautifully. They have a magical feel to them. Cheers.
