Tumbler that's black, held by a European (7)


I believe the answer is:


'tumbler' is the definition.

'black held by a european' is the wordplay.
'black' becomes 'b' (as in pencil classifications).
'held by' is an insertion indicator.
'european' becomes 'croat' (person from Croatia).
'b' going within 'acroat' is 'ACROBAT'.

'that's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for acrobat that I've seen before include "Performing gymnast" , "Athletic Circus Performer" , "User of five ac" , "Circus star" , "Gymnastic entertainer" .)
