Fine quality absinthe spoon, Les Carrés #10, circa 1900 with the maker’s poinçon or mark on the back of the handle (the mark, however, is struck poorly so it is difficult to read).

This is guaranteed to be a period absinthe spoon from a French bar; it is not one of the many reproductions which are being sold on the Internet...

$150.00

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. Th...
