Vintage French absinthe spoon, Les Feuilles #1, circa 1900. These spoons were placed over a glass with a sugar cube on top, and the water was poured over the cube to reduce the bitterness of the absinthe. 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. It is in very good condition, showing some stains and oxidation from use...

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. The mark has the maker's mark C•B with a grassho...
