Stirrup cups were originally created for having a drink whilst on horseback, usually before a hunt moved off. As they are small, they could be emptied quickly and could be held easily. The most popular design of stirrup cup features a fox head. This example is made from pewter and is crafted by one of the UK's leading pewterware manufacturers, which has been making pewter tableware since the 18th century. The cup holds 2oz, and can be used as a spirit measure. Makes a unique gift idea. Excellent condition.
