stirrup cup


Glasses & Vessels


A cup of the colonial era, associated with the English fox hunt. Stirrup cups were small, most often metal, sometimes glass vessels that often took the form of a fox or elk but could be as simple as the shape of a thimble. Traditionally the cup might hold a "fortifying dram" of brandy taken before the hunt to ward off the chill.
