This antique absinthe set is a beautiful example of fine French glass blowing craftsmanship. Absinthe was legendary in Paris in the late 19th-century and was still widely used as a hallucinogenic up until the 1970s. Some still even use it today, although it is not recommended. Apparently it is not very good for you and can make you go insane. Picasso was said to have enjoyed its effects and we all know what happened to him! This wonderful set would, however, be a very interesting conversation piece.
