The Redsmith's workshop is an Occidental Production building that produces Candlesticks from Brass and Candles. Candlesticks are required to satisfy the Need for Property of Patricians and Noblemen. The need for Candlesticks develops when you reach 3,000 Noblemen and 2,850 Patricians. Unlike any other good, Candlesticks are wanted "retroactively" by a lower class (Patricians). The Candlemaker's workshop and Redsmith's workshop are both listed under the Patrician buildings, but the required Brass production is listed as Noblemen buildings.
