Selling an empty Oxygenee bottle is NOT the same IMHO as selling an empty Deva or MM bottle. Oxygenee is not available anywhere outside France - in fact it seems only to be available in small quantities in one small region of France. As someone who has ordered it by mail from La Vinoteque, I can attest that ordering from them is both inconvenient (they don't accept credit cards), time-consuming (they are slow to reply to emails, and do so only in French)and expensive (they will only ship by Fedex, not through the postal service).
Over and above this, the quality of the Oxygenee bottle and label is far ahead of any Spanish absinthe (or La Fee for that matter), and Justin has, not accidentally I am sure, left a tasting tot in the bottle.
I'd be the first to criticize the empty Deva/MM bottle rip-off merchants, but to be fair, this is not the same thing - I could well imagine that this would be an interesting item to a bottle collector.

and the person that bid on it is a bottle collector...I have bid up to 5 times what a Greek 15th century print is worth just to get a hand on it...bad condition with side notes..or even bidding like 4 times too much on that cunieform cone I got recently...all a matter of what you a willing to pay...

Yeah, but you *did* start it out at $10. LOL.

LOL...I don't need a empty bottle...and there is no reserve....

Should we add Justin's empty bottle auction to this list? LOL. Our very own PT Barnum.

WOw, good week on ebay for good absinthe stuff !!!!! :)
French original mini bottle Absinthe
By lareclame
------> The condition isn't perfect. But it is a fine label. (and rare)
Original Absinthe Fontain
By (avec absinthe Cusenier)
------> Fontains "JR" are pastis fontain.They are the more common fontains you can meet in France (with 4 taps) and they are rarely in bad condition. The stud on the cover seems missing ?
-----> The cardboard "OXYGENEE" that you can see on this picture is a great item. RARE.
extremely rare OLD ABSINTHE SPOON-SPOON #1900
------> It is a fine spoon. Perhaps the second more common spoon among LES CUILLERES LONGUES, but more and more difficult to find.....
By sunburnz
------> It is a fine spoon. Perhaps the more common spoon among LES CUILLERES LONGUES, but more and more difficult to find..... (be careful, there are fake in France)
French Chromo on canvas absinthe pernod orig.
By lareclame
------> Nice Chromo Pernod. It is the more common (frame no marked PERNOD FILS and bottle without the label 68). But more and more difficult to find in great condition.
By tittine
------> Great Item. But i don't think that it is the genuine frame. Usualy the frame is marked PREMIER FILS and there is no glass. (perhaps the frame has been changed circa 1900.)

Fabulous week for antique absinthe stuff !!! :)
