Amadeo Double Magnum RAINBOW decanter by Riedel. Limited edition, only 50 decanters made in the world! Mouth blown crystal in Germany.
This decanter was created in collaboration with the Elton John Aids Foundation. For this production Riedel donated 25 000€ to the foundation.
Elton John said:
‘The rainbow has so many wonderful associations – from hope and promise to inclusion and tolerance. We are delighted and honoured that Riedel is donating funds from this beautiful piece to support the work of the Elton John AIDS Foundation; funds we can use to promote compassion in the fight against HIV and support services that will bring us closer to an AIDS free future’
Maximilian J. Riedel, 11th generation CEO and president of Riedel Crystal, explains his motivation for the choice of colours and design for the new decanter.
“We create products for a segment of the glass sector that is all about culinary delights, enjoyment and a refined lifestyle. Nevertheless, we must not forget that there is also another side to life. Today we are faced with the dark side of this world – even within the circle of our own friends and through the news that we are forced to see every day. We are all called to help, and to promote all that is good in this world. This is why I feel a desire to make a statement with the AMADEO Double Magnum decanter”.
