A name synonymous with elegance and luxury, Waterford was founded in 1783 by George and William Penrose in the ancient Viking city of Waterford. From the start, the principle that would guide the company for more than 200 years was simple: handcraft crystal "as fine as any in Europe...in the most elegant style."
The Penrose's knew the secret to mixing just the right minerals and glass to produce crystal with beautiful and mysterious qualities. When tapped, it sang sweetly. When touched, it felt warm and soft. The magnificent pieces crafted in Waterford's early period set the standards now recognized as the hallmarks of Waterford Crystal.
Today, Waterford is the world's top producer of fine crystal, and continues to be the brand of choice for the most elegant of table settings and luxury lifestyle accoutrement.
