Bar Tools - Absinthe Tronc de Comptoirs
ITEM: Tronc de Comptoirs (Spoon Holder)
ITEM TYPE: Absinthe Spoon Holder
COST: $65 (Plus Shipping)
Overview:To have a fully tricked out absinthe set-up, you need a holder to hold and showcase your spoon collection.Yes you can get away with throwing a bunch of them stem down into a glass, and fanning them out, but this looks a lot better and would have been the way it was done at the turn of the century on the bar.
Appearance: Well cast and finished, no mold marks. Brass with metallic pewter finish. Casting is solid, heavy and decently done. Finish is excellent. Dimensions: Height is 8 inches, diameter is 4.75 inches, so it will accomadate a lot of spoons nicely.
First Impression: Hefty, hate to be on the wrong end of this-probably was a popular weapon of oppurtunity.
Testing: Not much to test- heavy, solid, does the job and looks nice.
Final Thoughts: Just the thing to show off the spoons and complete your absinthe montage.
Lots of pictures, scads of information and best prices I have seen. Highly recommend their site and products. Great customer service and advice.
