Absinthe water fountain, miniature scale 1:12, Original piece sculpted by me and made in sterling silver 92,5% purity. Solid silver.

A typical absinthe fountain is an ornate vessel with several taps around its central water container, which permits a number of drinkers to louche their absinthe at the same time. On contact with water, absinthe will louche -- or develop a certain subtle clouding that will slowly transform the drink's colour from deep emerald into a delightful shade of opalescent light green.

The absinthe fountain is very much part of the ritual of drinking absinthe, and the venerable and often highly ornate fountain once was a centrepiece of many great absinthe houses, both on the Continent and across the "pond".

The statue on the fountain represents the Absynthe Fairy, who was believed to alive in absinthe, according to the legend, when absinthe and water mix, the green fairy is set free. She was called the nectar of the poets.
Size: 5,5 cm x 3,4 cm x 1,4 cm.
