Yes, as I recall there was a mirror with a well-known absinthe painting reproduced on it that went for over $300 recently. If it is the mirror I'm thinking of they were mas produced and sold from poster shops in the 70s.

And, in fact, many are not even that.

About 3/4 of those glasses are actually juice glasses -- but most of the spoons are real. In general eBay is a case of buyer beware.

I'm more amazed by how well various reprints of absinthe advertizing prints do.

There is a person from Luxembourg selling 'absinthe' glasses, spoons, and carafes currently on Ebay. Be advised that almost all of these items are in fact pastis items, and are not antiques.
