Absinthe Spoons - The quintessential absinthe accoutrement
The quintessential absinthe accoutrement - perforated spoons for holding the sugar cube over the glass. They are found in an extraordinarily wide range of designs.
An absinthe spoon is the quintessential absinthe accoutrement, coming in a bewildering variety of forms.
Antique perforated spoons for use with absinthe are prized collectors items. There are hundreds of variants, some issued to commemorate historic events like the opening of the Eiffel Tower in 1889, some representing intertwined absinthe leaves, others with engraved advertising for one of the famous brands of the day. Almost all have been exhaustively catalogued by Marie Claude Delahaye, the leading French authority on absinthe and absinthiana, and the author of numerous books on the subject.
We offer an ever-increasing range of fine replica spoons, with models to suit every taste and budget.
