Pewter Fox Head Stirrup Cup/Spirit Measure 2 fl.oz
The Spur has been the Trademark of Edwin Blyde & Co. Ltd for some 130 years when one of the Blyde family joined the Company straight from a Cavalry Division of the British Army. The company's history can be traced back as far as the 18th century.
The stirrup cup was created for holding a drink to be taken while mounted on horseback, usually prior to a hunt moving off. As it is of small capacity it can be emptied quickly and there is no need to set it down during use. The most popular late eighteenth/early nineteenth century designs were those in the shape of a fox’s head.
These days this delightful pewter companion can be used as a spirit measure.
Size : Diameter 2"/5cm, Height 3"/7.5cm, Capacity 2 fl. oz.
