Absinthe Topettes

These are topettes of various shapes and sizes. The waiter/bar tender would give the costumer a vessel/topette of different sizes filled with absinthe. Based on the amount of dosage markings or rings, would let the waiter know how much to charge the customer.  Each dosage mark or ring measures around 25 to 30ml. These topettes were also used for cognac, vermouth and other liqueurs.  This is collection I have acquired throughout the years.
