Hola, amigos.

I would like to tap the Forum's collective knowledge about this carafe identifier.

I found it in Montevideo, Uruguay. The brand seems to be of an absinthe, and the name on the back corresponds to a traditional Uruguayan silversmith.

It is silver-plated (Elkington Plate) and the shape around the letter U corresponds to the years 1912/1936.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Indeed.

This translation is from a 1914 ad:

Liquor of the Kermann Father Publicity of 1914 for Liquor of the Kermann Father, old French liquor (F. Gazanove, Bordeaux). On the paper which the Father holds, one can read “My liquor will be tonic and digestive”.

Good to see you here, amigo….

Kermann was a herbal liqueur, not an absinthe (although the name and a modified image from the label is used for a modern crapsinthe).

Thanks, Imp and Abs. It was too good to be true… sniff…

It was interesting to check Hartsmar website and in this one

there's a poster of Pere Kermann's liqueur from Brazil circa 1900, unfortunately one cannot read the small print.
