Example text

Two Les Feuilles spoons, a #11 (left), and #1 (right), are from one of the prettiest spoon series to be found. Les Feuilles (the leaves) use a leaf-shaped theme. The #1 is the only in the series not shaped like a leaf; instead, the leaf theme is reflected in its holes. The Les Trous #25 features smooth edges and a solid feel, making it a good choice in service. In near-mint condition, it is stamped with the maker’s hallmark. Belonging to a wonderful series of spoons, this rare Les Grillagées #2 has slightly raised sidewalls to surround the sugar.

Tall and wide, they are hefty and substantial. Left: Standing over eight inches tall, this rare Yvonne glass is heavy, well-balanced, and etched in a bold geometric pattern. The dose fills the narrow area in the bottom third of the glass. The tallest of glasses used with absinthe, they make quite a statement. King of the reservoir family, the Pontarlier glass is among the most sought-after absinthe glasses. Classic and historic, it offers a tactile link to absinthe’s past. A famous chromo by artist Charles Maire features similar Pontarlier glasses with a bottle of Pernod-Fils.

The half-inch long patent mark is revealed in this close-up. Bté SGDG is short for Breveté Sans Garantie Du Gouvernement. It is most unusual to see this patent mark on a glass. A Cordon glass is a perfect example of form following function in design; a band (cordon) encircles the outside of the glass, marking the dose. Cordon glasses are used specifically with absinthe. The rare six-dose topette behind, has matching bands. This beautiful absinthe glass has gem-like facets on its dose reservoir.
