I hope I'm in the right forum.
I wanted to share this very nice catalog with you, so that you could see all the kind of glasses this glassworks from the east of France was producing.
There's a few absinthe glasses, a topette and some beautiful carafes, including a very special one:

What year(s) does this date to, Marc. Bouncing around in a car so sorry if it's right in front if me - the male urinal would work wonders for me about now...
Leave it to me as I find a way to be,
Consider me a satellite forever orbiting,
I knew all the rules but the rules did not know me...
Guaranteed...

It's undated but my guess is that it's circa 1900-1910.

Very nice. Though what looked like water dripping carafes for absinthe on my iPhone, turned out to be something very different on a full sized monitor. Such things are still used on private aircraft. :)

Thanks for sharing this wonderful catalog, Marc!

It's interesting to me that one of the bottles is pictured with a brand-specific etching of Absinthe Cusenier. Do you have any idea if they may have been licensed specifically for that marque, or if that may have just been used as an example and it was actually available for other marques as well?

Hard to tell, but I think it was just an example with one of the most popular absinthe brand, Cusenier was number 1 in terms of advertising.

Marc, are these the famous urinals engraved with dose lines? I understand the customer would be charged by every line reached. :devil:

Does Minnalouche know that his absinthe
Will pass from change to change
As emerald clouds to opal,
And yet nothing will change?

Still he drinks opaline.
