I have had this lovely Rosenthal glass vase for qiite a while and have wondered who designed it . I read some place that reidel made the vases for Rosenthal but can not find that referance again .
It is marked with a crowned R ( see last photo) . and is delightfully cut on the surface with shall polished circles. of different sizes looking like bubbles. The coulour is more a deeper Teal green than blue .
9"tall and 2 3/4"diameter at the widest part.

    Riedel. The Riedel family started many glass works in Bohemia from 1828 onwards. They were not only entrepreneurs but also expanded the science of glass making. They developed two Uranium based colours, and in 1912 had a laboratory where they developed 600 different glass colours. They were to go on to produce an extensive variety of glass ware. During the first half of the 20th century, they produced cameo glass, and marbled and Jugendstil vases and bowls. In the 1900's they produced enamelled and gilded glass, and in the 1920's they produced pressed opalescent glass figures similar to Lalique. They produced Wiener Werkstatte styles in blown glass and also heavy marbled classical pieces. They were also famous for cubist style perfume bottles. Walter Riedel invented glass fibre, and was to be arrested in 1945 and forced to the Soviet Union to manage a glass laboratory. The Riedel factories were nationalised. Walter was released in 1956 and he moved to Austria, where he and his son set up a new glass works by buying Tiroler Glashutte in Kufstein after it went bankrupt. They specialised in fine stemware, and won many prizes for design. During the 60's and 70's they began to develop a more dramatic style with designers from Italy, with lop sided glasses and interlocking vases. Between 1962 and 1976 they were commissioned by Rosenthal to produce glass and giftware. They opened another factory in 1969 in Schneegarten in Austria. Claus Josef Riedel developed the Sommeliers range in 1971. This is also known as the Wine Waiters range, and there are more than 30 glasses in the range. The company continues today producing tableware. See mark. no connection to Riedel.
