In any case, it probably isn't from Argentina; otherwise it would say "Ajenjo" instead of "Absint:".

I once saw a beautiful deep blue, cut glass apothecary jar here in Santiago, with "Ajenjo" etched into it. The piece sold quickly for about $450.

Maybe a bit overpriced. On the other hand one should know how old it is. condition seems very fine.

Yes, I've seen many out there without the nice artwork, but just the wording. Still pricey even without.

If its genuine, $600 is a very fair price for a jar of this quality - if anything, on the low side. But there are hundreds of repros out there, many of them made by long established companies to high standards, so you really need to take expert advice before spending that kind of money.

Apothecary Jars can go for alot, especially if they're lovely and handpainted such as those.

But I'm no expert and don't know actual values. I just hunt for bargains on ebay.

My hunch is that it might be market value, in the states that is.

I found this A. absinthium apothecary jar in the San Telmo quarter, in Buenos Aires.

It was authentic and mint, but at US$ 600 it seemed too expensive. It wasnt't even KISSED by Kallisti...

Anybody knows whether it is so, or I'm missing a good deal?

BTW, the price went by size. The absinth one was the same price as the rest.
