Vaseline Glass Austrian Art Deco Emerald Color Absinthe Personal Decanter+Shot
Austrian Art Deco Emerald Color Vaseline Glass Absinthe Personal Decanter + Shot Glass, amazing etchings throughout & around decanter. Beautiful Austrian 1920's Emerald Green Uranium Glass Personal Absinthe Decanter with 1 Shot Glass. Beautifully etched flowers, vines, great solid original stopper, with 1 small shot glass! Absinthe, is 100-140 proof and the idea was to sip a small amount always, not only highly potent alcohol ratio, but supposedly the berries/mixture used to make was also somewhat hallucinogenic as well! After prohibition was lifted Absinthe remained on the no sale list for 25+ years, only becoming legal again in later years, one of the oldest in America was in the French Quarter! Perfect condition, no chips, cracks, scratches, damage, repairs in the decanter, stopper perfect as well. Shot glass has a manufacturing flaw in it, also I don't believe it is the original glass glass set usually 4! 1920's 6.75 inches w/stopper, 5.5 inches w/o stopper, stopper is 2.5 inch, 4.25 wide main body, with a 2.75 inch base.
