Pontarlier Absinthe glasses are the original:
Pontarlier glasses are named after the French town Pontarlier. Pontarlier was the Absinthe hub in the 19th century, many distilleries were located in this small town close to the Swiss border. The biggest player, Pernod Absinthe, had as well a large factory in Pontarlier. Originally the glasses got their name after they appeared in an advertisement for Pernod Fils Absinthe. The original motive was painted by the artist Charles Maire, but Pernod mass-produced these artworks and soon they decorated almost every French bistro. If you are lucky, you can still find a copy at a flea market in France.
