Simply beautiful. The 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. 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.

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.



This fountain used to be called Absinthe Fountain Lady.

Extremely well built with solid craftsmanship and a weight that is unexpected.
No leaks, adjustable drip and a great buy all around.

Positives:
+ Very solid, much more so than it appears from the pictures.
+ Has a heavy, steady feel to it and does not lose balance easily, so the risk of breaking it or accidentally spilling it is minimal.
+ Very beautiful, elegant design. I was expecting it to look rather kitschy, but it doesn't at all, particularly when you also experience its weight.
+ Good as both an exhibition piece and a functional accessory, as the flow of water can be set for anything from sparse drops to a steady stream by slightly adusting the taps. The fact that they do not turn at the slightest touch makes it easier to accomplish this.

Negatives:
- Not a lot of attention given to details. The design is grand, but not perfect, as the finer elements are not awarded the appropriate attention for the price.
- The taps are slightly leaky, so it needs to be emptied rather quickly after use to avoid getting the table wet overnight.
- A bit tricky to assemble correctly, as it risks getting tilted if not slotted and screwed in properly.

I would give it 3.5 stars rather than 3 or 4, but given that most reviews give it 4 or 5, I believe 3 should do well to add a bit more balance. It's an beautiful piece, but not fantastic. I would recommend it to any enthusiast who also wants to showcase their passion to friends or simply enjoy a classy glass of absinthe on their own.

This fountain has to be seen and held in person to truly appreciate it. High quality, hefty weight, and beautiful conversation piece. Everything works fine and you can precisely adjust the drip from the spigots. It's also easy to disassemble and clean.

I love this fountain, It's a great conversation piece and it's very relaxing to sit around it with friends and perform the the absinthe ritual over and over again.

This was ordered as a gift for Christmas. It arrived perfectly packed and on time. I did order early. Sorry to hear others had delays. It is a beautiful piece. The pictures cannot possibly do it justice.

I gave this lady fountain to my husband for Christmas this year and he absolutely loves it! It was much prettier than we expected. The picture does not do it justice!
