Waterford Crystal

The Waterford Crystal story began in 1783 when George and William Penrose founded their crystal manufacturing business in the busy port of Waterford. They seized on the opportunity to produce 'plain and cut flint glass, useful and ornamental' in their factory, which was situated in the heart of Waterford city.

Since then, Waterford have been producing what is arguably the world's most beautiful crystal by blowing air with precision through hollow irons into molten material whereby the depth of the brath influences the shape and depth of the crystal. An while this principle has never changed, they have consistently developed advances in technology to produce and refine their crystal products.
