A grey cylindrical lithographed tinplate windmill with green base, brown crinkled circular roof, and brown and white sails, made by Bing in the 1920s or 1930s.

The windmill has a square white lintelled doorway with "17" and "02" marked above the left and right sides, above which is the text "Int. Reg. / TRADEMARK / BW /BAVARIA"

The windmill appears to be identical to the one pictured in the 10/9362 "steam engine and accessories set" image printed in the 1930 German Bing catalogue, so it's presumably designed to be capable of being driven by an external mechanism.
