Absinthe Spoon Pricing
Absinthe spoons are priced according to 3 criteria: Age, Finish and Detail of design. An older or antique spoon will be more expensive than a newer reproduction. Absinthe spoons with premium finishes such as silver or gold will cost more than a standard finish like chrome or stainless steel.
