1920s hunting drinks set to auction for $46,000 among gentlemen's luxuries

Christie's online-only auction of Gentlemen's Luxury Accessories: Barware, Sports, Travel & Leisure will be highlighted by a fine 1920s hunting drinks set from the Goldsmiths and Silversmiths Company.

Goldsmiths Hunting stirrup cups
The set bears the hallmarks of its makers, as well as the marks of the retailers.


The auction runs from July 19-29, with the hunting set among the highest valued lots at £20,000-30,000 ($30,626-45,939).

The set comprises a cocktail shaker in the form of a flared hunting trumpet in silver and silver gilt, its lid featuring a detachable cap and integral strainer. This is coupled with six hound head and one fox head stirrup cups on a mahogany stand, carved to enable the cups to rest horizontally or vertically.

Also among the top lots is an Asprey & Co art deco cigar box, which was produced in silver in 1927 and is valued at £8,000-12,000 ($12,250-18,375).
