Icarus, I may have mentioned it before, but I got it at Camelot Village in Bennington. They have some GREAT deals there. All the flea markets here in NY go to VT & New Hampshire, buy stuff and come back and sell it for 4 times the price...

Still cool though. Anything even remotely related found at a flea market/garage sale is rad.

I like old bottles period. Stick a big mum in it and put it on the piano.

Thanks! I only paid $4 for it anyway, so it's not like I'm out of luck on it.

Unfortunately it's not an Absinthe Cusenier bottle (there are pictures of the Cusenier absinthe bottle on both Ian's and my websites). Cusenier was one of the largest liquor manufacturers in France, and made dozens of different liqueurs, aperitifs and brandies, so the bottles are common. Its difficult to tell from the photo, but because of the relatively shallow turnup, I'd guess that this bottle dates from the 1930's, or even later.

Sorry not to have better news...

I found this Cusenier bottle a couple of months ago at a flea market in Vermont and was wondering if anyone knew whether it was an Oxygenee Absinthe bottle, or was just another Cusenier brand (which I'm assuming would still be rare).
Anybody know if it is what I'm hoping it is?Oxy bottle?
