Absinthe Spoon Frénay Feuille (Sterling Silver) - Kirk Burkett
Please note that these spoons are shipped directly from Kirk Burkett's studio in Virginia. The ultimate absinthe spoon: a sterling silver replica of the legendary Frénay Feuille spoon from Kirk Burkett. The extraordinary leaf-design Feuille spoon made by the Parisian silversmiths Armand Frénay was recognized almost from the outset as the most beautiful of all absinthe spoons.
Today, surviving originals are not just rare, but essentially unobtainable - less than a handful survive, and only one has come on the market in the last decade. A few replicas have been made in recent years, but without exception they are merely rough approximations of the originals, crudely copied from catalogue illustrations.
The well known Virginia-based artist Kirk Burkett brings his skills as a master craftsman in silver and his passion as an absintheur together in this extraordinary range of sterling silver absinthe spoons and grilles. These highly original and beautifully worked pieces are the first truly modern rethinking of a classic absinthe artifact in over a century, and have been greeted with acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. Aside from the beauty and originality of the spoons, they are supremely practical - they fit snugly on any standard sized glass. They are an absolute delight to look at, and to hold. The original range of grilles has now been augmented by several spoons, including the extraordinary Artemisia spoon with a bowl fashioned of intertwined wormwood leaves and, most recently, a perfect replica of the legendary Frénay Feuille spoon, one of the rarest and most sought after of all absinthe spoons. As with the grilles, the photographs don't do these spoons justice - they need to be seen in the flesh for the workmanship to be fully appreciated. -- The prices shown here all INCLUDE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING. --
