A beautiful shaped water carafe, similar to that found in French bistros and bars in the late 19th century.

The carafes were usually placed on bistro tables and were commonly used by customers to prepare their own drink, especially for making absinthe. In addition to being used to hold water, these carafes were also popular promotional and marketing tools, used primarily by alcohol manufacturers.

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.
