SIDE PROFILE OF STIRRUP CUP/TODDY MUG

Toddy was a drink of brandy, whiskey, etc. mixed with hot water, sugar, and usually spices. These porcelain china stirrup cups or toddy mugs were manufactured by various German factories, many of which are unmarked, English factories and Austrian factories. Most date around 1870-1890 when hunting of various wild life was not illegal and was referred to as an aristocratic sport.

For those of hunting sports such items can evoke a memorable experience of their past when such sporting events were completely legal in their countries. Therefore such items can rank under memorabilia.
