Hi Peter

At the risk of self promoting in every thread :-) I have been away for a while in Goa and not paying as much attention to my web site as I should. While I was lying in the sun my host decided that it would be a good time to delete my account and advertise it for sale. all is now OK and Absinthe Originals is back on the web.

If you get offered another at $600 grab it with both hands!

By Chrysippvs on Monday, February 25, 2002 - 06:04 am: Edit

I think that particular one was one at auction for around 600 or so, too rich for my blood.

The spoon third from the right is La Feuille d'Absinthe #4, commonly called the "Joanne" spoon, as it was made to advertise this brand. Here is a closeup :

Oxy,

Egads! Is that a photo of your own absinthe collection?

By Destiny on Sunday, February 24, 2002 - 12:09 pm: Edit

What is that spoon called (third from the right, to the left of the Feuilles)?

TimK,

Now you know the secret. You have to be on the same plane as the Fairy powers to get them to work.

Off my face, and a waste of space,

Shweeeet. I'm guessing that ceramic dog is a water pitcher. Correct? The green glassware is gorgeous.

Wolf,
Can you handle sound files?
I have a 1913 Victor Patent label Red Seal, with Caruso singing one of his few records in english. The song is titled Love is Mine.
I can record it if you would like a copy.

I pour 2" N.S. 70 into $2 "cut crystal" glass. Put the Hartz Mountain classic, Teach Your Parakeet to Speak on the portable 78 player. Open kitchen tap until cold, quickly fill glass to watch gooey louche. Sit back on salvaged lawn chair in living room. Chug glass. Wipe mouth w/back of sleeve.

"Hello. Hello, baby."
"Hello. Hello, baby."
"Want a treat?"
"Want a treat?"

I will have to shoot some photos of the phongraphs, and some of my antique junk. Ted and Rupert got to check out the phonographs.......now if I could find a copy of Fee Vert on French Edison 2min wax cylinder,.... Absinthe songs are dammned hard to find on vintage recordings.

That's beautiful, Wolfie.

Vintage sounds to pour by, playing single sided 1910 Victor patent label red seals, on a Columbia Graphonola, or winding up an Edison Standard circa 1906, playing original wax cylinders.
King Oliver on Okeh,...jazz winding out of a Victor 270 lowboy console.
My favorite vintage phonograph to play while drinking absinthe, a 1926 Edison Diamond Disc, London console, with automatic record stop.
No needle's to change, and no tone are to lift.
Five wind-up machines and looking for a sixth.

Absinthe & Caruso


Glasses, topette, water jug, sugar and spoon are ready. I lit up an old oil lamp... The only modern equipment around is my sound system playing a remastered recording of Enrico Caruso dating back to 1906...(Insert scratching sounds here). Slowly I pour while those notes from another age makes me shed a tear of strange emotion. As the green turns to opaline, I'm feeling this weird but pleasant sensation of anachronism ; I'm cheating with time, listening to Verdi's masterpieces sang by one of the greatest opera signer of another century.

I pour very slowly, stoling as much time as possible to this crazy modern world. I pour from very high so the water splash and exhume the aromas. The green fairy makes her apparition, she's an old fancy lady who use to be the Prima Dona but now she sings like a gramophone and smells of lavender...
