Named after the town in Ireland where it was founded, Waterford Crystal was first established in 1783 by brothers George and William Penrose. Over 200 years later, the company is still a symbol of tradition and craftsmanship, growing from luxury water glasses to crystal glassware, barware, homeware, vases, bowls, and picture frames. The brand's pieces feature elements inspired by its Irish heritage, including its most famous pattern, the Lismore. Created in 1952, its diamond and wedge cuts reference the Lismore Castle in the countryside of County Waterford. Constantly evolving, Waterford's new crystal formula replaces lead oxides with barium oxide, creating 100% recyclable material and reducing its factories' energy consumption.
