This Bohemian glass merchant was the starting point for a direct line through several generations down to today´s corporate head Georg J. Riedel and his son Maximillian. Each Riedel in this long chain has been able to contribute his personal skills and views to expand the company´s success and make it what it is today. The Riedel story begins in 1678 in the northern part of Bohemia, bordering Schlesia - today the Czech republic and Poland respectively. This part of Bohemia was a German speaking enclave known as the Sudetenland. The Venetians brought back the knowledge of glass making from the Near East around 1.000 A.D. The knowledge of producing glass spread slowly towards the northern part of Europe, searching for energy, critical to the melting of glass. Wood was the source, causing a glass maker migration to the forests. Due to this migration, a glass culture developed in Bohemia in the 17th century.
Great glasses, best value anywhere around

These glasses are modern and sturdy, unlike the stem ones. Also best value compared to elsewhere for Riedel glasses.

Debbie from Brush Prairie, WA – Verified Buyer
The likelihood of these breaking is high. More to do with me, than the glasses. They're lovely to drink from...

Love this product! These glasses are very thin and excellent quality! I only wish they came in different packaging as they are going to be given as a gift.
