Vintage Inspired 65Cts Porcelain Absinthe Bistro Coaster

Regular price $12.00 $11.00 Sale

Description // SHIPPING & EXCHANGES

Bistro saucers served a duel purpose in the pre-ban absinthe era. Besides serving as a coaster, they also functioned to indicate the price of absinthe being served. The price was written on the inside rim or bottom of the saucer/coaster and was use to advise the customer of the price of his absinthe. The money was generally left inside the coaster itself. In this case, the glass of absinthe would have cost 65 French centimes.

This saucer/coaster features a green hand-painted rim with blue and gold accented pinwheel lines. The franc mark is printed into the bottom of the saucer.  Use it in the kitchen as a dipping dish, on your nightstand as a trinket dish, on your coffee table to hold decorative matches, desk for paperclips, or as an actual absinthe coaster.
  • High quality porcelain.
  • Hand painted rim and pinwheels.
  • Paint and text are fired into the saucer. They will not fade.
  • Saucer measures approximately 4.6" in diameter by .825" tall.
  • Height inside saucer measures .55".
  • Made in Baton Rouge
