A lovely vintage silver-plated fox jigger/shot glass. This piece is simply magical. Extremely heavy in weight. The detailing of the fox's head is simply incredible, from the fur to the ears. If you flip the jigger upside down, it balances on its ears and nose. The silver-plating is a bright silver and the head has a very subtle "gold" hue. Truly a neat antique jigger.

A quick summary on this type of cup and where the name originated: Stirrup cups (dating back to the late 18th century and 19th century) 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.

Hallmarks: None

Condition: Very good vintage condition with a gorgeous patina, which adds to this jigger's magical factor. The interior is completely clean. No dents or dings. In short, this jigger is in good vintage condition with heavy patina. Cheers!

Measurements: Approx. 3 1/4" tall
