I did wonder about Absinthe myself. They did have special glasses and often a contraption was put on top to hold a sugar cube the drink was poured over. If the contraption was metal, it might be responsible for the wear on the rim.

Does it have a deep narrow hole in the stem? I'm fairly sure that was an absinthe feature.

An assortment of absinthe glasses may be seen here (3 pages of them) but none are stemless like this glass. http://www.museeabsinthe.com/absintheVERRES1.html

I can only see the first page of the museum.  :'(
I appear to be blocked from seeing any more.

With regard to more contemporary tall stemless glasses with very thick bases and a sort of pointy bottom inside, I did discover these are Turkish coffee glasses. They are nothing like this little Uranium pot.

on the basis of Anne's link to Absinthe glasses, then Keith's glass seems not to qualify  -  I did wonder if it might have been something used in connection with a magician's kit?         I seem to have some notion that Turkish coffee is served in quite small quantities - that might qualify here then  -  a coffee deception glass for a toastmaster !!

The tall glasses may have been for the water that is served with Turkish coffee.
I had a bit of a search on the web, but couldn't find any.
I have seen them in charity shops and I researched them then, but that was some time (years) ago.
My searches however, now come up with far less than they used to.

thanks Anne - very desirable glass, though rather pricey.            This isn't a deception glass despite the constricted appearance of the lower half of the cavity - this internal shape is typical of late C19 press moulded drinking glasses - the plunger is shaped thus presumably to make it easier to force its way into the plastic glass and the base too looks rather typical of Continental chunky bottoms.

Am I reading that correctly  -  a five year sale period, or have I got it wrong?
