In addition to no 3 - A Dutch silver windmill cup

Before drinking the cup one had to blow through the blowpipe on the backside, by which the sails were set in motion.
All the time a hand was set in motion indicating a figure from one to twelve. The hand indicated the number of beakers the drinker had to empty. If he did not empty the cup before, the sail stopped.
