The handmade decanter distinguishes by an elegant and complex design. Designed with the historic RIEDEL lettering in the centre of the carafe, the decanter is created in homage to sixth-generation Josef RIEDEL Senior, also known as the ‘Glass King of the Jizera Mountains’. It was under Josef’s aegis, when RIEDEL glassworks was based in Bohemia, that the company developed into one of the largest and most successful in Europe at that time. In explanation of Josef RIEDEL’s significance, 11th generation CEO Maximilian RIEDEL comments on his outstanding achievements ‘Josef was awarded the ‘Grand Prix’ at the World Exposition in Vienna in 1873, Emperor Franz Josef I presented him with the ‘Knight‘s Cross’, the Pope awarded him the ‘Sylvestrine Order’ and he was made an honorary citizen of the towns of Franzensbad and Wiesenthal.’ Like all decanters designed by RIEDEL, the ‘RIEDEL’ decanter is hand-formed and mouth blown by glassblowers in RIEDEL’s factory in Tyrol. The historic RIEDEL lettering design, inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, was used by RIEDEL in Bohemia as the signet for all its products between 1890 and 1925. It was then reintroduced in 1996 on the occasion of RIEDEL’s 240th anniversary celebrating all RIEDEL’s hand-finished and freely mouth blown products. The ‘RIEDEL’ decanter showcases these product features with one small minor detail – thanks to its slim form, the RIEDEL decanter fits perfectly into any refrigerator door. A "must-have“ for wine connoisseurs and a collector‘s item for all RIEDEL fans. RIEDEL tip: use bottle cleaners to remove stains inside the decanter

      Caring for your RIEDEL Crystal

      • RIEDEL glasses are dishwasher safe. RIEDEL exclusively recommends MIELE
      • To avoid stains: use soft water (low mineral content)
      • To avoid scratches: Avoid glass contact with other glass or metal
      • To remove stains: use white vinegar
      • If available use a stemware rack
      If washing by hand
      • Wash the glass under warm water (use detergent and rinse the glass carefully)
      • Glass polishing: Use two polishing cloths, never hold the glass by the base to polish the bowl
      • Stem snap: Occurs through mishandling = torque or bend pressure at the stem
      • Storage: Avoid glass storage in kitchen cabinets which have strong aromas that translates into glass
      Microfiber Polishing Cloth
      • Wash at boiling temperature (to kill bacteria) with odorless soap

      • Never use fabric softener when rinsing your microfiber polishing cloth (avoids grease film on surface)
