Deco Period Glass Lamp-work “Absinthe Goblet”. #GG889
$25. minimum order on all smalls
A wonderful profusely decorated early 20th century lamp-work goblet! All of the decoration was skillfully applied bit by bit by hand. Just look at the workmanship!!! Delicate pale amethyst color. About 5” tall. Perfect!!!
According to tradition, the reservoir beneath the bowl would hold a small amount of absinthe. The glass would then be filled with shaved ice and then water was slowly added. The green absinth would rise into the bowl and mix with the liquid. Said to produce a mystifying effect!
