My first absinthe antiquity

Isn't it a beauty?  Picture from the Absinthe Originals website
My first antique absinthe spoon arrived today, and I could not be more happy.  It was a gift from my mom, and the first truly antique Absinthiana object I own.  It has some marks that tells it is from the past, but that only adds to its beauty.  It is a "Cuillère Ouvrageé 2".  I still have not had the time to investigate about it, but I definitely will.

It came from Absinthe Originals, one of the most trusted places for absinthe collectors to get real antique items, and highly recommended by my friends at the Wormwood Society.  You can be sure the owner of the site is not going to rip you off, and that he offers real jewels over there.  Not only spoons, but glasses, carafes, spoon holders and many more absinthe related pieces.  Even though some of the pieces are expensive (of course!), there are also affordable ones, and one has to start somewhere, right?

My friends tell me absinthe antiquities are like tattoos, once you get the first you cannot stop.  We'll see if they are right...

It's gorgeous. I love absinthe. I bought my glasses and spoon new but I'll definately have to check the shop out, I'd love an antique one.

Great spoon! Your friends are right, once you get 1 absinthe antique, you'll want more. I now have 5 antiques spoons, 4 antique glasses, and a few antique bottles. Happy collecting!

Hi Jack! Good to see you around here :)
I am pretty excited about the spoon. And yes, you are right. I am already saving my pennies for the next one...
