Did you know that...?
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 drink 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 absinthe 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.

Very pretty fountain

I wanted to create an atmosphere worthy of an absinthe evening and this lovely, small fountain was just perfect. Truly a work of art, and labor of love. I would love to have this fountain in gold color.<br /> <br /> The packaging is simply amazing. The entire fountain fits into a small, cardboard box with each part individually encased in solid styrofoam. This would probably withstand falling from an airplane. Assembly takes only a few seconds.
