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.

 

Absinthe ritual with Absinthe glass, spoon and sugar:

In the following video you can see how you prepare Absinthe the traditional French way. You need an Absinthe glass, an Absinthe spoon, sugar cubes and ice cold water for this ritual. This is how it works: You place the Absinthe spoon on the rim of the glass, put a sugar cube on top and slowly add water. The Absinthe in the glass blends with water and magically louches from green to an opalescent white color. Santé, your sugared Absinthe is prepared!

Good qualtiy glass
This glass is very well constructed. It's facets show beautifully in the light and accents the louching process wonderfully IMHO. The reservoir holds a decent measure of absinthe and is easier to clean than some other reservoir bubble glasses which have a smaller aperture in the reservoir chamber. A good acquisition for an absintheur on the go.
