ABSINTHE SPOON from CRAZY PIG DESIGNS

Here's s picture of a sterling silver ABSINTHE spoon
that we have made recently.So far only two have been
created
This is a SPECIAL ORDER only item.
Absinthe is a very famous ( or infamous ) alchoolic dring
that many artist , painters, poets, and musician drank
on a regular basis , to loosen up their creative talents ( so to speak)
The french governenment banned Absinthe
with the clain that it would make drinkers  mad

the slogan ABSINTHE PERD NOS FILS
(abinthe kills our sons) was modified later on
and the name PERNOD became the official legal drink
( but without the herb that would drive you mad)
The ABSINTHE RITUAL.
The spoon is balanced above a glass, and a sugar cube is
placed on it
The Absinthe sits at the bottom of the glass.
Ice cold water is slowly poored over the sugar cube, that slowly
crumbles and falls into the Absinthe.
The sugar cube can be soaked in Absinthe and lit up
before pooring the cold water.
ABISINTHE related items have now become
collectors pieces.
To celebrate this most amazing drink
CRAZY PIG  proudly presents
our own ABSINTHE spoon..

  1. I don't want one of these, but I'm curious if you could do a DaVinci wing design - and if so, what it would cost...
