Absinthe Coaster, Stand, Trivet  

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!!
