Contacted the seller and mentioned these were modern and selling through abs.com for around $70 and was in a round about way told to "piss off, they must be stupid for selling it that cheap."
My next question was "how do you know it's from the 1950's?"
Still waiting for that reply.

I bet this is seller's ignorance.
It makes more sense to pick an age that is plausible if you were deliberately going to misrepresent.

Because absinthe was so popular in the 1950s.
Oh, wait...you said 1950s.

Well... As sad as it may sound, I have seen the actual same behaviour on French antique markets.

Hi,thank you for your informations. I found it in a vintage shop and it has been sold to me as a vintage absinthe fountain (1960's). But I've revised my announcement this morning because an other ebayer told me the same alert that yours. Please could you tell me if my annoncement is correct now.

Good for the seller. Not everyone is willing to eat crow when deserved. In the end he showed proper humility and respect. If only all eBayers were that open-minded.
