Riedel Signature Mark
« on: September 13, 2011, 12:57:20 PM »
I have uploaded a picture of my Riedel paperweight it was taken using a magnifying glass so had to sacrifice image quality for zoom. It has 1 broken cane and it looks like it has a picture in it the way it is broken looks as if the picture is upside down.  Very frustrating as its the only cane damaged and it has something on the face of it  :thud:

Has anyone got a picture of the Riedel signature mark?

Cheers Spencer

Hi Spencer

There is more than one version of the Riedel signature cane.  John Simmonds wrote an article about signed Riedel weights in the April 2009 issue of the PCC Newsletter. Both have a capital 'R' inside a shape like a fat vase with a flowery top. They come in blue and brown versions (and maybe wine red), in a plain white circular cane.

If you Google 'Riedel signature cane' you should find a link to a pdf of Marek Kordiasiewicz's talk to the 2009 PCA Convention - that has an image of a Riedel signature cane in it.
