  • A 10 ring antique French Absinthe carafe with 2 bistro glasses

    An unusually large example of an antique French absinthe 'topette'. popular during the late 19th century. This topette has ten rings marking ten individual doses, and was used to provide measures of absinthe to customers.

     

    This also comes with 2 glass bistro glasses “Mazagrans” dating from the late 19th century. Heavy, solid and beautifully made in France. Hand-blown in thick, straight-sided glass. Showing a polished pontil scar under the base of each as each one was mouth blown. We do have more Mazagrans if desired.

     

    In very good condition. No chips or cracks.
