These are three very good looking and heavy brass plated wall brackets which would hold a one-inch diameter rod which could be metal, glass or wood. They would make a stunning statement in a powder room or bathroom. They feel very hefty — each one weighs about one pound, fourteen ounces for a total of five pounds, ten ounces. The brackets would protrude 9¾ inches from a wall. The bases of the brackets are 5½ inches high by 2¾ inches wide. I would think these date from around 1910...

Rare antique glass from a French bar used to serve absinthe. This style is known as an East glass because it was supposedly used in the East of France, in areas around Lyon. This is a heavy, hand-blown glass with a polished pontil. It has a dose mark marking the level to which it was filled with absinthe. Water was added to the liquor, making a cloudy drink. I personally like the glasses with dose marks because you can be sure they were used for a drink like absinthe to which water was added...

Beautiful French silver wine bottle ticket or label with an open slot into which you can put a card with the name of whatever wine you have in your bottle or decanter. The decoration has an anthemion at the top and a foliate border at the bottom but if you look at it with a different eye it appears like a face with eyes at the upper corners with a bushy moustache above a crescent-shaped mouth -- maybe reflecting the silversmith's sense of humor...

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.

French absinthe era bar saucer with 5 franc price and scarce silver-gilt rim and line decoration. Less saucers were made with high prices on them and are consequently harder to find. Most saucers of this pre-ban period had considerably lower prices on them. This is a guaranteed genuine turn-of-the-century saucer or soucoupe from the Belle Epoque when poets and artists drank the addictive wormwood-based drink absinthe, which was banned in France in 1915. When you ordered, each drink was served on...
