Product Description

Many times the Reservoir glass is what people imagine when they think of an absinthe glass. These glasses have a pronounced bowl made into the bottom of the glass where the absinthe is poured and measured. The dose mark for these glasses is very specific and easily seen. Most Reservoir glasses are panel cut which helps accent the absinthe's appearance during the louching process. These were among some of the earliest glasses made specifically for absinthe.

VERY rare faux dose mark Reservoir glass. Glasses such as this was use to "cheat" or deceive the customer. The dose mark is very small, which meant the bar poured only a small amount of absinthe into the glass.

Panels (facets) cut in reservoir bowl of glass. Slight signs of wear under glass. Amber tint to glass.
