old soda fountain glasses work too, if a little large. but I like my cocktails big.

they used to (probably still do) sell them all the time as absinthe glasses...

but I picked mine up in an antique shop for a couple bucks a pop.

Oxygegenee, is that a reproduction? And if so where did you it?

I bought a pernod glass online that I'm quite fond of. It is stemless and looks a bit more like a pilsner glass than the traditional sort but the price is great.

The Tarragonna glasses are beautiful, just be careful with them as they are fragile.

I like the way the ones at spirits corner look. Have you checked them out? They seem to be a very nice set. I think someone here on this board has bought a set of them.

eAbsinthe.com's la Fee glass is actually really nice heavy cut crystal. It has the la Fee eye etched in the bottom of the base.

The picture here doesn't do it justice:

Looks like they're out of stock, and the price has gone from $25 to $44. Oh well.

"These glasses are very rare and expensive due to the work involved in blowing the reservoir"

Yow! After seeing some of the saucer/spoon/glass sets priced at $200+, I think that may be a bit out of my league. Some really, really nice pieces on that site, though. All antiques... Thanks for the tip, maybe I'll put it on my xmas wish list.

Anyone know of anybody making repros of glasses like that? Or other places that may be less expensive?

Absinthe Originals, which is somehow connected to LDF (I think; at least they have a link to the LDF page on their site) has a similar looking glass, if not the same glass, at http://www.absintheoriginals.com/pontarlier_glasses.htm. Looks expensive, though - "email for price."

I have a set of the LDF glasses, but I'm looking for something a bit more unique, and higher quality. Something that's not pressed glass...maybe with some sort of dose marker.

There's a glass pictured on the LDF site (with the bottle of Sapin) that has a nice reservoir, but isn't as cheesey as the Versinthe reservoir glasses. I'd love to find something like that.

Does anybody have any suggestions on where to find glasses? I'm considering the Pottery Barn glasses from the other thread, but I'd like to know what else is out there.

Thanks!
