Product Description

These glasses were nicknamed the âœoeuf❠(egg in English) glass because they resemble an egg in shape. They are more of a simple, yet sophisticated absinthe glass. These glasses were more prominent in the turn of the last century, as indicated in distillery advertisements of that time period. Oeuf glasses are generally a little on the larger side of the absinthe glass. Average Oeuf glass accommodates a standard absinthe dose (usually between 20 to 25 ml).

This is a very unusual glass. The bottom half is panel or facet cut with alternating panel cuts on top of the original panels. Then between every two panel cuts there is a small flower motif etched into the glass (see photo). This glass a lot of very interesting glasswork. Best seen looking down into the glass from the top (see photo).

In superb condition with very little wear.
