Pride of Ireland: Waterford Crystal

Named after the city of Waterford, Ireland, the eponymous and world-renowned crystal dates back to 1783. Keep the Irish tradition alive today with this fine flint glassware, such as a pitcher and cake stand. Which catches the sparkle in your eye?

Waterford Crystal –It’s History and Heritage
 
In 1783, when Beethoven was publishing his first works and the world’s first hot air balloon took place in Paris, in Waterford City the Penrose’s, George and William, petitioned Parliament for aid to establish the manufacture of flint glass in their Waterford Glass House. They were successful and established an extensive glass manufactory in Waterford city on the 3rd October 1783.
 
In January 2010 WWRD Group Holdings Limited, the leading luxury goods group which owns and operates the Waterford Crystal, Wedgwood and Royal Doulton brands, announced that it had signed an agreement with Waterford City Council to open a brand new Waterford Crystal manufacturing facility and retail outlet in the very heart of Waterford. The new Waterford Crystal Manufacturing Facility melts down more than 750 tonnes of crystal and produces more than 45,000 pieces each year using traditional methods. The facility offers guided tours of the manufacturing process to all of its visitors both International and domestic. Since it's opening in June 2010, over 250,000 people have visited the Retail Store and factory tour.
