A full service for 2 drinkers (including a Henri IV sugar dish, 2 east glasses, a Feuille d'Absinthe #3 'Lacaux Frères' spoon, a Grillagée #3 spoon reworked by a poilu and a topette containing 3 doses of pre-ban Edouard Pernod) :

Another pair of glasses, some spoons, and 3 masterpieces from Kirk (I've sold all my other spoons to buy the Feuille d'Absinthe Lacaux) :

The Grillagée #3 (nice poilu carvings, my fav):

+ more in some other places, but I usually don't keep a lot of gear for myself, I mainly buy and sell...

That is some stunning gear you have there.

 

But it seems you may be ready to provoke a fight sometime:

Well, worth fighting for I guess.

 

Or,

 

Well worth fighting for. :cheers:

I've bought this nice little forged iron bar last friday, so I've filled it as I could and took some pictures.

 

I'm really pleased with it, but the big problem is the height & width : 147cm x 40cm (58" x 16"), I can store enough bottles (for a one month consumption ;) ) but not enough gear, I was only able to fit one pair of glass in the lowest shelf as they're (luckily) not very tall.

Same problem with the other shelf, I can't put any water carafe except for this little 1/4L (but I really love it as it has the same facets as the glasses and the topette, it makes an harmonious set).

 

So the rest of my gear is hidden in a cabinet, not easy access, I will try to assemble them on a table and take pictures (if they're not sold before).

Lovely pictures, mthuilli, and a great collection. I hope you make sure you don't have any dog/cat/other cute pets/children running around close to those shelves! :cheers:

Luckily I have no pet and my daughter (3 1/2 years old) never touches anything, she knows daddy's stuff ;)

 

The Ouvragée #5 (3 stars, no copy) in the lower shelf is for sale, more to come later when I will clean my 'secret' cabinet.

Might be a good idea to be sure that cabinet is attached to a stud, just in case. Looks like it could tip over REEEEAL easy-like.

Are they supposed to go in the recycling trash can ?

 

Just send them to me first and I'll do the job for you ;)

So, you're selling all of these, right? :devil:

 

Edit: (it also allows me to register what I own and see what I will sell as I'm not keeping a lot of stuff for myself)

The Feuille d'Absithe spoon looks just like a "copie" that Corkscrew was selling on ebay a while ago. Did you buy it from him? :devil:

Grrrrrrrrr

(note to myself : add Wild Bill Turkey to my banned buyers list on eBay)

 

So, you're selling all of these, right? :devil:

Soon, I will sell some soon...

BTW, how tall is your east glass ? ;)
