I work at a resale store that donates its proceeds to a veteran's charity and we get donations of all sorts and the other day I got a box of clothes in and in the bottom of it was an absent fountain and I know nothing about this but it may be worth some money so I was just hoping to pick some brains about the value of this thing and whether it's actual vintage or reproduction or or if it is actually antique any thoughts would be helpful thank you.

About absinthe fountains
The Virtual Absinthe Museum has pictures of vintage absinthe fountains, as well as a rare nineteenth-century postcard that shows French country folk using a fountain as they enjoy L'Heure Verte - the "Green Hour".
Close-up photos of a replica fountain can be seen on Vive La France Online - a New Orleans shop that sells this and other essentials for the modern-day absintheur: glasses, spoons, sugar holders... Obviously, they do not stock the drink itself.
