Dutch Windmill Goblet Sterling Silver Novelty Item

.Dutch Windmill Goblet Sterling Silver Novelty Item

code: wb3954

Antique Dutch silver windmill wine cup / stein, c.1860. This fabulous item is made of a windmill house connected to a win cup with a sculptured figure of a man. The wine cup is highly decorated with floral, foliage engravings. The windmill house is made with a large windmill connected on the other side to a small clock like looking hand / pointer surround by Roman numerals. The entrance to the windmill house is through a beautifully made staircase with a sculptured figure carrying a barrel up the stairs. These kinds of cups were usually used as follows: One of the drinkers, usually there were several involved, would invert the cup and would fill the cup up with whatever was the home′s choice of schnapps or liquor. Then he′d spin the windmill wanes by using his fingers, this gets the vanes started in rotation, he then had to drink the contents of the cup before the vanes stopped going around. If not then he had to pay some type of penalty, which was determined by which number the hand / pointer stopped on. The list "of games" is pretty much endless and are very similar to the "dice cup" games, of which there are hundreds. The wind-flag, the dove on the thatched roof, and little figures on the banistered staircase, must have some long forgotten significance - but by the late 1700′s all of the cups evolved to almost always include them. Marked with antique Dutch silver marks and later marked with English import marks. This unusual cup is 6" long and weighs 89 grams or 2.9 ozs Troy.
