Absinthe Fountain Belle Epoque - 4 taps / B stock

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

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.

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.

Gute Fontana, die Mängel des Glases sind fast nicht zu sehen, ausgezeichneter Kauf ähnlich einem identischen Brunnen von Calsse A.
Einziges Problem: Reinigen Sie das Innere der Armaturenrohre sehr gut (eine industrielle Wäsche wäre gut).
Alles in Ordnung
