Beer Glass Design for RITZENHOFF Design Collection

Beer Glass Design for RITZENHOFF Design Collection

Click here to see ALL of Ian Marsden’s Ritzenhoff Designs

I had the pleasure of designing a brand new beer glass for RITZENHOFF, featuring a Weizenbier (white beer) glass with a fun original viking character. As an artist and illustrator with over 20 years of experience, I was thrilled to work on this project and bring this unique glass design to life.


This high quality crystal RITZENHOFF Design Collection beer glass holds 500 ml and features a fun little viking character with a metallic gold helmet, sword and axe.

Left and right there is a floating, sparkling gold beer glass design.

The unique beer glass ships in a black Designer tube and includes 5 custom coasters to match the design with the designers signature on the back.

If you’re a fan of Weizenbier or vikings, this beer glass design is the perfect addition to your collection. It’s a unique and playful piece that will surely impress your friends and family.

This is the perfect gift for any chieftain or tribal leader (a family counts as a tribe, doesn’t it?)  who occasionally enjoys a chilled, frothy beverage.
