Wager cup, Gerrit Jacobsen, c. 1625

silver (metal), h 20.0cm × w 21.5cm × d 9.0cm. More details

The tiny archer (a Roman soldier) can spin around, keeping his balance by means of the semicircular metal rod with a bird on both ends. The empty cup was probably placed on the table among the guests. The archer was spun and when he stopped, his arrow pointed to the person who had to give the first toast.
