Topettes on US Ebay

Recommended Posts

I noticed a few topettes on US Ebay. They all come from the same seller in Belgium. To me they just don't look right: The glass is colorless, the proportions are slightly off, and they don't represent types that are known to be original. I could be wrong (hell, I've been wrong more than once in my life) but I thought I would post it in the case some members here are thinking about bidding.

Hey Absinthion, I just looked at those, and there are many many kinds of topettes out there...these are likley old, but I suspect some non-original bouchons (stoppers), which is not uncommon. Also, people did use tiny little bottles at night as a way to get to sleep. I have one of those, and it has the same bouchon as a dosed topette, yet is not a topette. The Musee forum over at the absinthe museum has many collectors

who are always happy to voice/add and opinion or info. They have both a French, and English forum, and it's a great place to get solid answers regarding issues like this. Some of these guys were quite helpful when I was putting my book together. I suspect they would be happy to guide you.
