The Dragonfly was a commercial release, but it was easier to leave it in than to crop it, and I like it anyway. I'm not sure about the one you mention. In fact, I'm not sure who made any of them, other than the Nephilim (angel and art deco label) and the ones I made myself (all-American and Ear Remover). To me, the little geisha and the others in the same picture are Turkey-like, but I want to say somebody else made all three of those. I seem to remember Turkey was an illustrator for Disney; so ...

Edit: It was Butterfly that was a commercial release; the dragonfly label is homemade.

I recognize many of those labels. I'm real lucky, thanks to utterly undeserved kindness from once-upon-a-time strangers. I know that. Those labels bring back memories. But of people, not booze.

I happen to have one of those odd bottle fountains I bought on the Ebay a while back. Was never quite certain one way or the other if it was a production model of something, or a one of a kind.

Maybe. Maybe not commerical. That bottle looked kinda not familiar but not the distillery name. I checked and had a bit left from a bottle of the same absinthe but with a different distillery name. So I louched a glass. Wonderful stuff, it aged real well. A classic of HG art. If I was asked for a benchmark of American HG circa then, the Dragonfly would be a real good choice. Not a huge louche, bfd. Lovely aroma. The anise is soft and the wormwood has bite. I don't know that it's really a classic Pontarlier recipe. Maybe more of an Americanized, "Hey--Wormwood is Really Good Pontarlier" recipe. Butt I like it.

You're right! It was Butterfly that was the commercial stuff, out of Boston I think.

In the early days people were making their own like that; there were no reproductions yet and most people couldn't afford an antique fountain if they even knew how to pursue buying one. But I think that one came from Pier One Imports or the like. I also had a Walmart ice tea jar that was similar, but not as pretty. Both were functional enough. That's a wicker pumpkin on the top, not a stopper.

Ah! the Heady daze of Olde Fee Verte scouring eBay for bottles with spigots, and I could get a 30s Herbsaint bottle for eight bucks.
