Absinthe Bistro Saucer/Coaster Red 3f15
Originally these saucers had an entirely functional use; when stacked the different coloured rims corresponded to how much the waitor needed to charge the customer. Unfortunately we are not serving absinthe. No matter, these saucers are good enough without a drink! The coloured rim is handpainted and the mark of the franc is printed into the porcelain before the saucer is enamelled and fired, ensuring that the mark will not fade. Perfect as a bits & bobs tray or for its intended use as a drinks coaster!
Made of porcelain.
The paint and text are baked in the saucer, the colors won't fade.
