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