Sorry, but I've got a question...  did Riedel make pressed glass?  A knowledgable person/seller (with the same candlestick) has told me he's got serious doubts about this attribution.   :huh:

Thank you for your input.

Edited to add:  It seems Riedel did make pressed items.  There is mention of it in "The Legend of Bohemian Glass" and here -- http://www.prazskagalerie.cz/en/news/from-editorial/luxury-for-everyone-chapters-from-history-and-present-of-art-crystalware-6.  Yet I'd still like to question the attribution.

hello Anik.         Subsequent to my post dated 14th April, I had not queried this item further, as had assumed that the confirmation from more knowedgable people than myself had resolved the matter  -  although as I commented at the time, the quoted date of  'around 1900' had rather surprised me.     I am neither an expert on Riedel, or early C20 Austrian pressed glass, so regret I am personally unable to take this matter further.     As you will see from the earlier stages of this thread, I did email Andy MacConnell back at the beginning of this discussion, but regrettably, for whatever reason, he declined to comment, although I think from memory the pair of similar sticks shown in the Miller's book for which he was editor, are attributed to Riedel.    Is your source able to offer proof of their reasons for suggesting these are not the Austrian factory??   after all, when we have 'serious doubts', we must assume there are good reasons for them. :)

Maybe I should have written "I'd like to gently question this attribution".  Has the candlestick since been found with a label, or in a catalogue?

Teaches me not to stick my big nose into areas I know nothing about.  Again, my apologies.(http://serve.mysmiley.net/ashamed/ashamed0001.gif)

I'm not aware of any comments from anyone since my note on the 14th of April  -  and I have certainly not been aware of seeing these sticks in any literature anywhere (apart from the Miller's example already quoted)  -  but I guess there is always the chance that positive attribution may yet be found  -  i.e. an example with label or whatever.      However, I think that Pamela has commented already that she is unaware of any existing Riedel catalogues, so we may be at the end of the road for now, although we can 'leave the door open' should more information come to light.                  Certainly no need for apologies Anik, no harm done. :)
