Regular price $368.02

A lovely set of 6 pewter stirrup jiggers that include 2 Elephants, 2 Lions, 1 Billy Goat (a male goat with horns), and 1 Rabbit (Hare). Such a magical set. These cups were made in both a full cup/goblet size as well as this smaller jigger size. When you flip them over, each jigger rests perfectly on its heads/ears. Extremely heavy in weight, these stirrup jiggers are solid and well-crafted. Their detailing stunning, from the various animals fur to their ears. Truly a magical set.

A quick summary on this type of cup and where the name originated: Stirrup cups (or smaller jiggers) 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.

Please note: these are the smaller "jigger" size stirrup cups, not the large goblets. If you're looking for large cup/goblet size, please see our other listings. Cheers!

Hallmarks/era: None, 1970s

Condition: Good vintage condition overall but with noticeable signs of age and wear in a a few places. We like to be thorough so here's a full summary:

1) The Rabbit jigger has some wear/a rough spot along one area of the rim (see photo). This jigger also has some micro small what we call "age spots" that are tiny darker toned spots the size of a pinhead.
2) The Goat shows minor surface wear on the lower back area (very superficial)
3) One of the elephant's rims isn't perfectly round (it is very, very subtle and nearly impossible to decern but we want to mention it here)

In short, this vintage Stirrup jigger set is in good vintage condition overall with noticeable signs of age in a few places. Please see all photos. Cheers!

Measurements: Approx. 3" to 3 1/2" tall
