Talking about the Boulenger spoons (my favorites) :

Pretty neat design.

 

My first impression was that it reminded me of one of those "wheel-O" toys.

 

Just a first impression.

Activated charcoal underwear.

 

Or could those be Hershey stripes?

Our absinthe podcasting friends found this on the intraweb.

 

Humpf... I still have an interview of Pierre Gonalons on how he came by the designs for the Pernod products. That being said, he did not want the interview published without the agreement of Pernod, which they never provided.

A Feuilles d'Absinthe #3. The Art Nouveau design elements are simply beautiful in this series. It's also just a great

spoon to use; the water breaks up into multiple little splatters which batter the absinthe surface perfectly.

And it comes with a handy sugar loaf cutting tool on the handle. It's the Veg-o-Matic of absinthe spoons!! But wait, there's more...

I feel so fortunate that something as special as this would find its way to me, thanks to a great guy/good friend I met here when I was new.

 

There's no shortage of genuine, smart, creative and awesome people in the absinthe community.

Got this interesting piece yesterday. It's Sterling Silver, Dutch, from the late 1800s. It was advertised as an 'absinthe spoon'. What would normally be the 'stem' of the spoon has been curled into a ring.

 

While I doubt the veracity of the advertising, the price was still attractive enough to make it worthwhile to add to my collection. :)
