This absinthe spoon is a replica of the famous "Toulouse-Lautrec" spoon.

A dozen of these were found about 20 years ago, the design is both beautiful and unique, and cut out from the tip of each spoon is the artist's personal monogram. The surviving originals are arguably the most sought after and expensive of all absinthe spoons, several of them now being proudly displayed in museum collections.

This well crafted and very affordable replica in stainless steel is a delightful and practical alternative for the absintheur who wants to prepare his absinthe and pay homage to one of the greatest artists of the Belle Epoque. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was an enthusiastic absinthe-drinker, particularly remembered for inventing a potent cocktail called "la tremblement de terre" - The Earthquake: a mixture of absinthe and cognac.

Lautrec always carried a custom-made walking cane, the top of which unscrewed to reveal cleverly concealed in the shaft a small glass and a tiny flask of absinthe.

Nice spoon, but is it too unfair of me to say perhaps they are a little too "robust" . . . . really looks like it was stamped-out from a sheet of metal (which of course it was).

The spoon looks and works fine.
I was surprised though, how fragile it is.

This is a very nice spoon, beautiful to look at and a pleasure to use.
