Decanters are for wine, especially for vintage port, although some people like to put their favorite drink in a pretty decanter. They are for seperating the wine from the sediment that develops in the bottle as the wine ages.

I believe it's probably an early Serpiss decanter.

no. someone trying to cash-in using 'absinthe'.
it could have been used for anything, including pee.
old, though, most likely mid-1800's, maybe earlier.

Just a question:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3231065005&category=35712

It says: typical for early Absinthe Decanters...is there any truth to this? I dunno about decanters, but could this have been used for any liquid? Looks like pee.
