Pontarlier II Glass
The Pontarlier II glass is a molded copy of an original in the Auvers sur Oise Absinthe Museum, run by Marie-Claude Delahaye, renowned absinthe historian, in the town where the artists Pissaro, Corot, Daubigny, Cézanne and of course Van Gogh did some of their most famous paintings. The latter, Van Gogh, ended his life in Auvers sur Oise.
This glass is named after the town of Pontarlier which was the world centre of absinthe production, and this type of glass was common in the area.
It famously featured in this piece of advertising for Pernod Fils:
