Simply beautiful absinthe fountain. A handmade glass reservoir is supported by a feminine form in the Art Nouveau style popular during the heyday of absinthe. The two taps are a classical rounded trefoil shape, and the lid is embellished with an acorn on top. All metal components are composed of solid brass. This smaller version of our most popular Lady Absinthe Fountain only has 2 spigots, a smaller and different styled glass reservoir and an height of 49cm instead of 60cm.
Please note that this absinthe fountain is shipped carefully packaged and will require some easy assembly. This involves simply connecting the base to the bowl and placing the cover on top.

|Did you know...?
|Fountains appeared in bars and bistros as absinthe gained popularity. Often a large glass container suspended above the table held between two and six spigots. It allowed a small party of drinkers to accurately prepare their absinthe all at once with a slow drip of cold water but did not require the painstaking concentration required by a carafe.
Absinthe was commonly served in normal bar-ware, but eventually specific glasses were popularized. These would commonly have a short thick stem and faceting to enhance the absinthe's appearance. Glasses were marked with a dose line, by either etching or a glass band, showing how much absinthe should be poured into them. The term 'reservoir glass' covers several styles of glassware with a small bulge at the bottom which marked the dose. They were the first type of glass made specifically for absinthe. A less common variation, called the bubble-reservoir glass, contained a defined bubble shaped reservoir.
