A lovely pair of vintage silver-plated Fox stirrup cup and matching jigger. This cup and jigger set features a silver-plated lower and a heavy cast metal upper that has a gold wash to it. Circa 1970s. Both the cup and jigger are very heavy in weight and have a solid feel to them. Truly a lovely set.

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; 1970s

Condition: Very, very good vintage condition with mild signs of age. Please note: the head of these stirrups were made in molds and you can see a tiny "seam" on the back of the stirrup cup's head. The silver-plating is in excellent shape. There's some very mild tarnish. Both interiors are clean. No dents or dings. The fox heads on both pieces is in good shape overall but does show very, very mild wear on the nose and ears (its very minimal). Overall, this set is in very good condition and displays beautifully.

Measurements: The stirrup cup is 5" tall; the stirrup jigger is 3" tall
