Absinthe Fountain Belle Epoque - 4 taps

This magnificent ornamental absinthe fountain is a perfect reproduction of one from the 1900s. A handmade glass reservoir sits on top of four taps in a classical rounded trefoil shape, and the lid is decorated with an acorn. Entirely made of solid brass, with the exception of the glass reservoir, of course. Placing your glass underneath, slowly dripping chilled water into your absinthe takes you right back to the Belle Epoque. These fountains are hand made using traditional techniques, just as they were during the Belle Epoque. With the traditional brass casting and plating used, this can mean slight grazes or imperfections in the finish. And in the case of traditionally crafted glass, the result is a beautiful antique-looking effect with small air bubbles and lines, as opposed to the flat and featureless finish of modern machine production. When using these fountains it's easy to find yourself forgetting what century you are in! Louche yourself an absinthe and imagine yourself transported back 150 years to a Parisian street café! We individually test each fountain before it leaves Absinthes.com HQ to ensure everything fits together and there are no leaks. absinthe ritual

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.

The fountain is of extraordinary quality, sturdy and very elegant. HOWEVER, one thing that I should point out is that THE FOUR TAPS ARE NOT PERPENDICULAR! I expected them to resemble a '+' shape, instead they are closer to an 'X' shape, with two taps very close on one side and other two very close on the other side. There are two gaps, possibly because the 6-tap fountain has six equidistant ones, so imagine the taps configuration as an asterisk but without two taps.
By the way, maybe it is even better this way, since it occupies less space.
Santé!

Belle fontaine, plus ... très belle fontaine tout à fait en rapport avec la photo du site, malgré les poc sur le carton grosse frayeur avant ouverture (merci la poste de votre délicatesse) colis bien conditionné donc pas de casse

Pas mal du tout dommage qu'il n'avait pas d'absinthe fournie avec

8 Mar 2018

Die Absinth Fontäne war für unser Herrenzimmer gedacht, hier sind jegliche Gegenstände aus Kunststoff verboten. Die Kombination aus Glas und Messingguss ist sehr gelungen, dementsprechend hoch ist das Gewicht der Fontäne. Sehr gut verarbeitet, hat alles perfekt zusammengepasst. Kann ich nur weiterempfehlen!

J'habite au fin fond du bois et pourtant j'ai été livrer dans un délai très court et la fontaine fut si bien enveloppé que rien n'a été endommagé. Merci pour le bon service!

15 Jun 2017

Nicely crafted fountain. I really love it. Makes a great addition to my collection.

2 Jun 2017

Je viens de recevoir ma fontaine aujourd'hui, elle est superbe, je suis très satisfait ainsi que le magnifique pot à cuillères que je recommande. Le colis était très bien réalisé et heureusement car vu l'état du carton à l'arrivée , les transporteurs ne l'ont pas ménagé durant le voyage mais aucun dégâts ! Merci pour votre sérieux !

Très belle fontaine élégante et robuste à la fois.
Qualité de l'ensemble au top.
Très bon emballage sécurisé et rapidité de livraison.
Nous recommandons vivement ce produit.
Un grand merci !

Très jolie fontaine, l'espace entre les becs verseurs et la base du socle fontaine est de 21,5 cm. Je suis très satisfait. Les robinets sont étanches fermés (ne coule que ce qu'il reste dans les becs après fermeture ce qui est normal) donc laisser le verre quelques minutes après fermeture du robinet. Fontaine d'un certain poids donc très stable. Emballage très sécurisant pour l'expédition (pas de risque de casse pendant le transport). Reçu 3 jours après commande ce qui est très rapide depuis l'Allemagne. Je vous conseille cette fontaine.

This was a Christmas gift for my 22 year old son. A friend of mine called it the ultimate luxury item for a home bar. I can't disagree. My son was thrilled. The quality is excellent. Very sturdy. Packed very well. When we initially put it together and filled it there was a small leak. We took it apart, and put it back together making sure to tighten the base as much as possible, and voila, no more leak. Highly recommend.

Très bel objet avec une superbe finition. Nous sommes entre l'utile et la décoration.
Magnifique et traditionnel, un vrai plus pour les amateurs !

8 Jan 2013

When having an absinthe on my own I usually rely on a balancier, but when I have friends over I bring out this beautiful fountain. A truly wonderful centerpiece for an absinthe gathering, it makes the whole ritual a special event!

Parfait état, les robinets fonctionnent très bien... très jolie fontaine... les enfants aussi sont ravis

18 Feb 2011

A very good and solid product. Quality was better than I expected!

29 Dec 2010

Réception du produit sans problème (tour du monde car je suis en nouvelle calédonie) l'emballage était parfait.

L'ensemble fontaine, verre cuillière est arrivé en parfait état.

Le montage de la fontaine est fort simple, l'effet déco est réussit et c'est un très bel objet à présenter qui attire l'attention. Les décorations du pieds, du verre et du couvercle sont élégantes et discrètes.

Son utilisation est simple, son fonctionnement est irréprochable. Cela offre une toute autre ambiance lors de "l'heure verte"

Félicitations pour tout....
et merci à la Fée qui me l'a offerte...

Superbe fontaine très jolie, très belle finition c'est exactement se que l'on attend.

18 Aug 2010

Très jolie fontaine, je vous recommande RueVerte : très sérieux, livraison rapide, sans aucun souci.

9 Aug 2010

La photo est très ressemblante, donc pas de piège!
Le pied en laiton fait qu'elle est lourde à soulever, elle ne fait donc pas du tout objet de pacotille.
Le verre est ciselé avec précision.
En conclusion, nous sommes entièrement satisfaits de cette fontaine.
