Please scroll down for photographs below. An antique silver model of a windmill mounted on a wine cup. Beautifully constructed with multiple moving parts. The windmill house is reached by a staircase with two sculptured figures climbing up, on one side there is a man peeping out of a small window. The revolving windmill sails connect to the clock hands on the other side and both move together. The roof is mounted with a revolving flag, a tiny bird and a sculptured finial. There is a horn which is non-functional.

Weight 203 grams, 6.5 troy ounces. Diameter of cup 8.5 cm. Fully stamped with Dutch silver marks for Amsterdam. Windmill cups were used as a drinking game. First fill the cup up with a liquor of choice and spin the windmill sails (either by hand or by blowing the horn).

The challenge is to drink the contents of the cup before the sails stop. The clock hands on some windmills also revolve with the sails and a penalty would be due depending on the number where the hand (pointer) stopped. Condition: This novelty cup is in good used condition. Stamped on the bottom rim of the large cup with 2 tiny duty marks, the sails and the windmill house both have Dutch pseudo silver marks. One of the sails has a repair. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age.
