|When the brothers George and William Penrose founded the Waterford Glass House in 1783, they made a bold promise - to make crystal in "as fine a quality as any in Europe in the most elegant style." They had in hand the old secrets of mingling minerals and glass to create a crystal of beautiful and mysterious qualities and radiated a distinctive, silvery white brilliance, which Waterford's artists enhanced with deeply - cut ornamentation.
Today Waterford Crystal is the leading brand of premium crystal. Its products - the superbly handcrafted crystal stemware, giftware and lighting - are designed and manufactured to the highest standards. Waterford Crystal has become almost a synonym for the finest quality crystal sought after by collectors and connoisseurs around the world.|
