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.

i'm happy with the general price and quality but the stems feel a bit stubby. i guess i should have been able to tell from the photo but, they feel a bit malproportioned somehow. still like them, they are just not super elegant. good for every day.

I really like these glasses. I was looking to purchase new glasses, specifically Riedel. Getting 8 of them for the price here was a great value!
