For Pride Month, Elton John's selling autographed rainbow crystal decanters for charity

Written by on June 5, 2018

Matt Baron/ShutterstockAmong the many things Elton John collects are glass and crystal sculptures.  Now he’s teamed with a legendary glassware company to create a special piece for Pride Month.

Elton and Austrian glassware company Riedel have announced the release of a rainbow glass decanter, which will not only raise awareness of Pride Month but also celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.  There will only be 75 decanters made, each signed by Elton, and five will be donated to charity auctions around the world that support the foundation’s mission. 

In addition, Riedel will donate $29,000 to support people living with HIV.

In a statement, the company says, “Usually, our limited editions comprise 50 units.  In this case, we have added 25 decanters, to express our respect for 25 years of Sir Elton John’s immensely important work.”
