The Absinthe glass "Pontarlier" is the epitome of an original Absinthe glass. It is world renowned after being featured in a painting made by Charles Maire for the most popular Absinthe of the 19th century, Pernod Fils. You can see the original painting in our photo gallery. The Pontarlier glass has a reservoir in the stem to measure the correct amount of Absinthe. Like former originals it is nicely cut, to give it a premium and nostalgic look. If you are looking for an original Absinthe glass, that makes no compromises in terms of quality the Pontarlier glass is the definite winner.

Info: We also offer similar Pontarlier glasses in our store: The Pontarlier II Glass and the Pontarlier Premium Glass. The latter is made of crystal glass, which is the best glass quality. When you clink, the premium glass has well a very nice sound. The Pontarlier II is made of pressed glass, therefore it is very durable but has a glass-scar at the walls. Both glasses are a bit taller than the Pontarlier Reservoir version. It is up to you, which glass you prefer. But the Pontarlier reservoir is definitely our favorite glass. We love, that these glasses are cut. It really makes them stand out and spreads the allure of the 19th century. If you are looking for nostalgia (like us), this glass will be the definite winner, we can highly recommend it.

 

Pontarlier Absinthe glasses and the painting by Charles Maire:

Pontarlier glasses are named after the French town Pontarlier. Pontarlier was the Absinthe hub in the 19th century, many distilleries were located in this small town close to the Swiss border. The biggest player, Pernod Absinthe, had as well a large factory in Pontarlier. For advertisement purposes, Charles Maire from Pontarlier (1845-1919) painted a still life showing a bottle of Pernod, two Absinthe glasses, a water carafe and a newspaper from Pontarlier. This is how the glasses got their name. Pernod mass-produced this artwork and soon the paintings decorated almost every French bistro. If you are lucky, you can still find a copy of Charles Maire´s famous still life at a flea market in France.

Elegant Glass
This is a beautiful and well made glass. It's a step up from the regular Pontarlier reservoir glass that everyone seems to have. It's really cool that an original of one of these is in the famous painting. I love mine and you'd love it too.
