An urn has been used by some folks. Older urn with the ashes removed of course.
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

OK, I planned on finishing after the silly photo, and was called away by a little one who refused to stay asleep...

If you search eBay for spoon vases, there are many in glass, and silver plate that are lovely, and very affordable. You may find something from the era, though not authentic to a bistro or absinthe, but very appropropriate for spoon use.

One of my favorites is a small spoon vase in silver plated brass from the Early 1900s. Though not a genuine tronc de comptoir, it is perfect for holding a dozen or so spoons, and only cost me about $20.

Look under "Spooner" you'll get more hits.

You'll see some in uranium glass (often referred to as canary glass and depression glass) too perhaps...always cool.

I think the nicest looking reproduction holder, and best value for the money, is the replica made by Frenchman. This is one of the better deals I've seen online: http://www.antiqueab...uct-p/1600.htm, though you may find one on eBay for less if you search a bit. It is a classic design and the repro is extremely faithful to the original. It's also very substantial -- a heavy piece. Looks fantastic and does the job -- it holds a lot of spoons.
