This was one of the very most common glasses in French bistrots and cafés during the 19th century, and with good reason: it is very sturdy and dependable glass. Unlikely to break too easily in the event of a knock, they give years of service.
The swirl glasses were not only used for absinthe but also for lemonades, all manner of alcoholic beverages, and a multitude of syrups and cordials. Highly versatile. These reproductions are dishwasher safe.
