  5. The largest one is a vintage (or repro) absinthe saucer. In French bistros, absinthe was served on saucers which had the cost of the drink printed on them. Your absinthe cost 2 francs 25 centimes, I think.

  6. Yes, a recent magazine (Martha Stewart, I think) just had an article on absinthe saucers.

  7. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
