Nice ebay find

Recommended Posts

I have a larger version (unfortunately not in Vaseline glass) that is decorated with frosted critters that look suspiciously like wormwood flowers, so your find may, in fact, be an absinthe glass, after all, although certainly more one for home use since it appears to be too delicate (and elegant) to be a bistro glass.

I looked at it May 17th. That was the first i saw of it. It was still open. I went to get it today it was gone. Hell I didn't even know about absinthe or uranium glass in 2010.

I know youre right Bill. Before absinthe I never cared one bit about glassware.I couldn't have told you a thing about it. Now I've got more of it than regular glasses.And that's all I look at when we go antiqueing. It used to be instruments, now its glassware. Tis a funny mistress this green fairie.

Same thing happened to me. Except for me it was cat figurines among other things.

 

Even though I live in a town known for its antique stores, I'm getting a lot of blank stares when I ask about absinthe glasses. One woman even asked me, "Do you mean reading glasses?"

It's just easier to browse around. Your eyes will see some interesting things. I like cordial glasses but I think I have enough.

 

Just my opinion. ;)
