A lovely trio of vintage silver-plated Fox stirrup cups. This set includes 2 large stirrup cups and 1 stirrup jigger. The cups features a figural Fox head (that has a "gold" wash/tone to it) and silver-plated bottoms. They have the most incredible detailing, from the ears to the fur. And they rest perfectly on their heads/ears when turned upside down. These stirrup cups/jigger are heavier in weight and have a solid feel to them. Truly a lovely trio.

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.

Hallmarks/era: None; Mid Century

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition with mild signs of age. All pieces have clean interiors (one of the cups has a very minimal amount of tarnish just inside the inner rim). All pieces have tarnish to the exterior (on the silver-plated portion). The silver-plating has mild "surface wear" in a few areas. No dents or drings. Overall, this stirrup cups/jigger set is in very good condition and displays beautifully.

Measurements: The cups are 5 1/4" tall x 3 1/4" in diameter; the jigger measures 3 1/4" tall x 2" in diameter


**On shipping: We take our packaging very seriously and carefully wrap all pieces to ensure safe delivery. Please note: we're not making a penny on shipping. These cups are solid/heavier in weight and we pack our items well to ensure safe arrival, which means a heavier box!

****Important to note pre-purchase: Buyers, please examine all photos carefully as we cannot accept returns due to the fragile nature (the possibility of breakage or damage when being shipped back) of our vintage/antique pieces. Our items are true vintage pieces that might have manufacturers flaws, flaws from age, or imperfections in general from being vintage.
