Bistro Glass Decanter Carafe - Absinthe

£36.00 GBP

- +

A beautiful shaped water carafe, similar to that found in French bistros and bars in the late 19th century. The carafes acted as a branding tool for many brands.

Once water is added to the carafe, it acts as a magnifying glass and enlarges the text on the dome! This magnification was a useful way of attracting attention as a popular marketing tool.

Water carafes were usually placed on bistro tables and were the most common method of preparing a traditional French or Swiss absinthe during the Belle Époque.
