These reproduction glasses are one of the most interesting of all antique absinthe glasses. Although they resemble a French Champagne glass, the glasses were made specifically for use with absinthe.
Glasses are made to the same proportions as an original 19th century French absinthe glass, including the reservoir. The reservoir is the area at the bottom of the cup and is absinthe is collected and measured. Reservoir measurements vary depending on the size of the glass, but usually measures 1 fluid ounce, or approximately 30 milliliters.
