The company of Waterford was first established in 1783 on land adjacent to Merchants' Quay in the heart of the Irish harbor town of Waterford. Its founders were brothers, William and George Penrose, whose vision was to "create the finest quality crystal for drinking vessels and objects of beauty for the home." Today hand-craftsmanship, precision skill and artistic excellence remain the core components that transform the finest of raw materials into the world's premium luxury crystal. We are proud to carry this prestigious line.
