Absinthe has a long and storied history, full of sometimes wild exaggerations. It is true that “The Green Fairy” as it came to be known, IS a high proof spirit.
It became wildly popular in the late 19th and early 20th century, particularly in Paris and with an illustrious group of fans, including Hemingway, Wilde and
Toulouse-Lautrec. Portrayed as an addictive drug, absinthe was banned in the US and Europe until recently. Featuring some of the most popular
French absinthe posters from over a century ago, this set of four 4” X 4” tumbled Italian marble coasters have a cork backing, are easily wiped clean,
and printed to last. The metal storage stand is a great way to keep them together.
Founded in 1898, Distillerie Blanqui was known for its quality beverages, among them absinthe. Their lovely promo poster graces this 8” X 8” glass trivet (with 4 silicone feet).
It will protect your furniture or counters from hot or wet dishes, and do it in grand French Art Nouveau style. Sante!!
