Handmade, mouthblown, absinthe glass replica of one of the more desirable antique glasses

Overview: Handmade, mouthblown, absinthe glass replica of one of the more desirable antique glasses

Appearance: Well made, no mold marks (glass is blown) with what I would call a thin commercial thickness lip (not like a Reidel martini glass) which will stand up to regular handling and less likely to chip thinner and more finished looking than the Pontarlier. Dimensions: height 6.8 inches, diameter 3.25 inches, bowl is inscribed for line for measuring out the absinthe. Capacity is 7 ounces.

First Impression: Easy-to-hold, nice balance, big enough to add enough water without splashing, measuring line and top of glass is faceted giving it a more finished look than some other glasses out there.

Testing: Easy to measure the absinthe. Width fits all spoon designs,fits the hand nicely,easy and straight forward to wash and dry.

Cons: Not as robust as a Pontarlier.

Final Thoughts: Robust and not expensive enough to make afraid to use it, easy to clean. . .
