#10 is correct. It's a crucible cup.

It's a shot of whisky – lean rod on edge of glass, filler-up (a shot) turn and dump whisky in drink glass. Cheers!

It is a jigger for measuring liquor for drinks. You set it across the glass, pour in and measure the liquor, and then roll it into the glass.

Perhaaps an Early Tot measure.

I believe it's a jigger. It would be placed across a glass and tipped after the liquor was measured by being poured into it.

Crucible cup to pour molten gold, silver, etc.
