Justin, congratulations. That certainly is a find. As for concerns about it's quality, vintage absinthe is vintage absinthe, it's a worthy investment for it's historical value alone. Know of any others? ;)

After about a month of negotiation with a Swiss antique dealer I finally got a unopened bottle of absinthe from the late 1890's or possibly the early 1910's.
The brand is DORNIER - TULLER and it was made and bottled in the Pontarlier region. The bottle is not quite a liter and stands around 10" tall. It was in a fire, but not even the cork was burned too bad. It has no label (probably due to the fire) and the contents seems fine. As for a review not quite yet, I am going to head down to New Orleans and consult some people, before I pop the cork. For the price I got this at even if the contents are damaged it was well worth it.
will post a pic on the forum
