Description

Brief History of the Stirrup Cup:  Most popular in the late 18th and 19th century, silver stirrup cups are a form of drinking vessel which were presented to riders on horseback prior to leaving or arriving home from hunting; this happened whilst their feet remained in their stirrups…..hence Stirrup Cup.  Specifically crafted for comfort when held in the hand and without a base, their small capacity allowed the liquid to be drunk quickly. On occasions they would sit to a bespoke crafted tray to fit their unique shapes. The beverage served in the stirrup cup was usually wine or a spirit based punch mixed with various spices.
