Antique "Felix Pernod" fountain

Recommended Posts

Just so you know, that is a post absinthe fountain from Spain, price is okay. You also should know that the water filter is asbestos and the plumbing leaches lead into the water, there is a thread about this J.R. fountain some where here. Nice to have though, I own one and it is just for display.

Thanx for the warning Rob. We sometimes forget that food and health laws are not retroactive. Stuff made in the past does not need to meet current code. I learned that the hard way with chrome plated brass spoons. They are not dangerous, but sure will oxidize if you are careless. Only 18-8steel from now on for daily use.
