Historical Absinthe Spoons

This absinthe spoon was made during World War I, from brass shell casings. If you look carefully, you can see two remarkable things: firstly, the soldier who owned this spoon inscribed his initials, “P.B.”, on the handle, and secondly, the holes form the date, “1914”.

One of the most expensive pre-ban absinthe spoons ever made, “Les Feuilles #20”. It was most likely used at high-end French hotels and restaurants.
