A stunning vintage pewter Rabbit (Hare) stirrup cup. Extremely heavy in weight this stirrup cup features the most incredible detailing...from the Rabbit's ears to his textured "fur". Heavier in weight, this stirrup cup is solid and well-crafted. This stirrup cup features a pair of etched Art Deco lines at the base of the cup. Truly a magical goblet. And when turned upside down, it rests perfectly on its head.

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: 95% can be found on the back/bottom of the head (meaning 95% solid pewter)

Measurements: Approx 5 1/4" tall x 3" in diameter

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition. No dents or dings. The interior of the goblet is clean and tarnish free. There's some very, very minor general "age" (that comes purely from time) and general surface wear (from past handling). In short, this stirrup cup is in very good condition and displays beautifully. Cheers!
