Damn! That's a great glass Garrett! Nice find! You would have gone nuts at the market at Absinthiades...there was a matching East glass there.

This is the most beautiful absinthe glass in my opinion, together with the Nass & Heckmann Pontarlier glass and the Hanhart-Esser East glass.

I have one for sell here btw: http://www.absintheo...om/glasses.html

Too bad Thomas Jefferson was never into absinthe (as far as I know). The wife and I saw the originals and the reproductions of these glasses at Monticello yesterday and I thought an absinthe oriented version would be particularly nice.

Could be interesting, but no indication of the size of the 'dose' at the bottom. The interior design, with thick sides to form a dose chamber, is reminiscent of some antique 'egg' glasses.

Why not? If they don't work well for absinthe they could have other uses.

Kind of a modern twist on a mazagran glass.  It looks like it'll work fine!

Yeah, I've only bought antiques on rare occasions when I could afford them plus more absinthe. Otherwise I just get more absinthe.

I was really pleased to add to my small but ever growing collection recently. 

A few old spoons and a Tarragona reservoir glass. 

I believe Humpty is eyeballin' my drink though.

 The fluff ball is named Nugget. A 10 yr. old Golden Yorkie we adopted when his owners health became too much for her to take care of. He came with a big box full of medicine and a book 2 inches thick of every procedure and vet visit he had ever had. His belly literally drug the ground, he had terrible asthma and could barely get around. He was used to a 20 piece order of chicken nuggets a day for treats. (Thus the name.)

 He had never been outdoors more than to use the bathroom and wasn't expected to live long at all. I didn't much care for him and couldn't understand why in the world my wife had brought him home, but she had promised the old lady on her deathbed that she would look after him and that's what we did. I put him on a diet of strictly dog food and began taking him to the woods with me on my walks.

 He seemed to enjoy being out there, seeing the world as he had never before. He tried his best to keep up. I smiled to myself at his tenacity and helped him along when he needed it. Before long he could cross any log or small stream and began to lose weight and seemed be gaining some vigor. Needless to say he grew on me and now he is my little trail buddy and keeps up with my younger and bigger hound and loves and enjoys his trips to the woods.

 The vet said we had probably added 5 to 7 yrs to his life. He is no longer on any medicine and is fit and trim, and the asthma is practically nonexistent. I wouldn't take nothing for him and I will probably cry like a little girl on the day he does pass.  But I am grateful for the little fella and what he has taught me about never giving up and to take each day as the gift that it is.

Thanks. I'd like to think so.

He also likes to climb trees now, like his Pa.

I was on the tree beside him. Of course, he had to follow suit.

Great story, good on you for giving him a life back! Warms my heart. (But I'm a big-time dog-lover so I'm a sucker for a story like that.)

We only have two glasses that came with a gift set that included a couple of replica spoons as well. Being of limited finances our priority with Absinthe is the drink itself, but our next project/acquisition is going to be a home made fountain (got all the requisite pieces, just need to drill some holes and put it all together - I'll post pics and a vid in the fountain thread when it's all done).
