Pontarlier Absinthe glasses and the painting by Charles Maire:
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. For advertisement purposes, Charles Maire from Pontarlier (1845-1919) painted a still life showing a bottle of Pernod, two Absinthe glasses, a water carafe and a newspaper from Pontarlier. This is how the glasses got their name. Pernod mass-produced this artwork and soon the paintings decorated almost every French bistro. If you are lucky, you can still find a copy of Charles Maire´s famous still life at a flea market in France.
