they are cordials or 'shot' glasses...it has been brought to my attention, by author benoît noël, who knows a relative of an original pontarlier absinthe-maker (i will know more after pontarlier-fest) that many more people drank absinthe (well, good absinthe) straight than was previously thought and the sugar ritual was for city-folk and bad absinthe(according to julian segarra in spain, absenta was a farmer's thirst-quencher-- NO sugar,just absenta and water and--- no thirst)these glasses are relatively easy to find in france...

"Baby" absinthe glasses?

I wouldn't want to get a baby started on absinthe.

Maybe they're for drinking absinthe straight?

Or maybe the fairies and elves like a drop of absinthe also?

Last week I got in a few rather odd glasses. These are tiny handblown minature absinthe glasses. I am stumped as to their use, perhaps as novelties or something along those lines. I have several swirl glasses, but the east and egg glasses are very interesting. Oxygenee, Ian, Phil maybe you can let me know what these are for...

mini glasses

Here they are with a regular size Egg glass for comparison...
