Quality Silver - Sensible Prices

We are offering for sale a superb silver-gilt stirrup cup in the form of a fox's head.


This drinking cup is cast and despite its relatively small size, it has a nice feel in the hand It is beautifully modelled as a fox with textured fur, pointy ears and long snout. Most stirrup cups are plain silver, however this one has the added bonus of being gilt (gold-wash) all over.


Stirrups cups were designed for use on hunting trips, but these days are used for all manner of alternative activities on horse-back, or even simply picnics and evenings out. This cup would be ideal for use as a spirit tumbler for whisky, brandy, cognac or a tot for such drinks as tequila, vodka etc.

Exuding high quality, this stirrup cup is highly recommended.
