From a Bistro, The tradition of "green hour" the hour of drinking Absinthe after work, was abolished when in 1914 the government banned Absinthe.
The Absinthe would be pored into the bottom of a glass and the spoon would be placed across the rim of the glass and a sugar lump would be placed on the spoon, water would be slowly dripped on the sugar allowing it to dissolve.
In some parts of France Green hour is still the term used for a quick ( or not so quick ) drink after work.
This listing is for 6 absinthe spoons.
Glass on pictures is not included in this listing, is only a photography prop.

More about absinthe from Wikipedia:
Absinthe originated in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland in the late 18th century. It rose to great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers. Owing in part to its association with bohemian culture, the consumption of absinthe was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists. Ernest Hemingway, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, Aleister Crowley, Erik Satie and Alfred Jarry were all known absinthe drinkers
