Waterford Crystal


Waterford Crystal is a manufacturer of crystal, named after the city of Waterford, Ireland. The origins of crystal production in Waterford date back to 1783 when George and William Penrose started their business. It produced extremely fine flint glass that became world-renowned. Their Waterford company closed in 1851, and re-opened 100 years later.

Waterford Crystal is regarded by many collectors as the finest quality crystal in the world.
