This is the first time we have had a yellow topette, the special type of decanter used in a French bar to serve measured doses of absinthe. The drinker was charged for the number of doses consumed. This one is molded and probably dates from the later years of the absinthe era or a bit later when it might have been used for other drinks that were diluted with water such as pastis or gentian flavored potions. It is 9 3/4 inches tall.

Bin labels were used to identify sections or bins in wine cellars. This is a vintage French enamel on metal bin label, dating from the early 1900’s, for CHAMPAGNE. Bin labels for champagne are among the most desirable. It was used for decades and shows some chipping to the enamel (which is usual on enamel labels, especially around the holes where nails were used to affix them). On this one there is some in-painting to some of the damage on some letters...
