The Absinthe Spoon The premier source
for fine replica spoons, glasses and fountains.

After years of painstaking searching in libraries, archives and private collections in Italy,
France, Holland and the US, Oxygénée has tracked down some of these forgotten relics
from the dawn of the motion picture era - restored and digitally remastered, they are now
available here, in most cases for the first time since their initial release nearly a century ago.
