-------- These fountains show slight scratches or other minor imperfections, but can be used like any other fountain. --------

Simply beautiful. The Winged Artemisia absinthe fountain is a delight to use and quite simply demands to be left out to be admired.

A handmade glass reservoir is supported by a feminine form in the Art Nouveau style popular during the heyday of absinthe, with wings evocative of the green fairy herself. The four taps are a classical rounded trefoil shape, and the lid is decorated with an acorn on top. All metal parts are made of solid brass. Useful and decorative.

History

Contrary to what one might assume, absinthe fountains actually arrived very late in its history, carafes having been used before. It is thought that they were introduced by the absinthe-makers Cusenier in 1886, trying to give absinthe a healthy image. Water quality was not known to be of high quality, and so the fountains also contained a filter to remove impurities in the water supply. Antique fontains are normally found with four taps, and were decorated with a coquerel, a symbol of France; an acorn; or a stylised pineapple, a traditional decorative form. It is believed these symbols were used to make the fountains, and absinthe, more acceptable to women at the time.
