The obvious elegance present in the champagne flute makes any champagne-worthy event even more classy.

Each flute, goblet, and glass can be customized by engraving, so, if given as a gift, this graceful glassware has an extra special touch. 
The designer of this brilliant collection, Waterford, has been making glassware of the highest quality since 1783. It was founded by brothers in the Irish town of Waterford.

Add a ‘garden’ to your urban space

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:20:00 PM in Waterford Crystal (39)

Even if you don’t have a garden or open space, you can still add ‘greenery’ in your living space. If you’re living in a high-rise unit inside a business district, flower vases can neutralize that feeling of being boxed. Try placing flower vases in strategic places.  Here are some nice places where to place the vase. Put it on the center table or corner section of the sala. The flower vase becomes the accent to its wall and floor backdrop. Place a plant accent in the kitchen window to add something organic in the usually metallic and ceramic layout of this part of the house. Likewise, you can place a flower vase in the bathroom, on top of the toilet bowl flusher or on a water closet top. An elegant vase like the Waterford Crystal Vases further adds allure to the flowers.

Honoring Tradition and Forward Thinking

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

Surely we can’t tell when and how glass making in Ireland started but there is enough archeological evidence that glass has been regarded with respect from the early Iron Age. Medieval documents, though, point out the glass making existed in Ireland way back in the middle 13th century. And to this day, one company has preserved and built on this rich heritage of glass making – Waterford Crystal. By honoring its strong links to its predecessors, Waterford Crystal has continued on the path of artisanal glass making and design by adapting the best creative and craftsmanship techniques available. Its creations vary from traditional stemware to luxury pieces. The company has been also known to have collaborated with leading names in fashion and luxury like Monique Lhuillier, John Rocha, Jo Sampson and Jeff Leatham

Baseball History

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

One of the recent commissioned masterpieces by Waterford Crystal is the Fireman’s Helmet in honor of New York Yankee’s Mariano Rivera for the record of most saves in baseball history. Rivera completed the feat during a game against the Rays. Handcrafted in the tradition of Waterford Crystal craftsmanship, the Fireman’s Helmet started with the perfect mould using the ancient craft of mould making using beach and pear wood. The red hot molten crystal was then shaped through the Waterford’s traditional glassblowing technique using the skills of its craftsmen to reveal an unblemished elegant crystal helmet. The commissioned work went through quality check and hand engraving, showcasing the number “602” to mark Rivera’s record permanently in the masterpiece. Finally, the Fireman’s Helmet was cut and sculpted by master artists. The result is nothing short of an elegant artwork that is similarly revealed in other Waterford Crystal works.

Irish grit and grace

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:20:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)

Waterford Crystal is known for creating one of the most memorable commemorative pieces in glass art and the JFK50 is perhaps one the more popular of these Waterford Crystal pieces.  The glass-making company created a replica to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s visit to Ireland, the so-called “homecoming.” As gratitude for the visit, the Irish ambassador then presented the president with an assortment of shamrocks, an Irish symbol, in a Waterford Crystal Oval Bowl. The bowl, now known as the Kennedy Bowl in the White House, has the detailed trademark touch of Waterford artisans. The bowl mimics a king’s crown and is set in a solid base. It is elegant and sturdy as it is confident, which reflects the general sentiment among Irish back then when they look at the Irish-descendant U.S. president as a symbol of Irish grit and grace.

His Pallas Punchbowl is celebrated as one of the Waterford signature collections, a must-have for the most sophisticated buyers.

A Celebration for the master

You know the crystal art is genuinely limited and prized when it is made to celebrate a glassmaker’s fifty years of, well, glassmaking. The Jim O’Leary Prestige by Waterford Crystal, a magnificent, detailed glass art that is more than just a juice cocktail bowl. Jim O’Leary is Waterford Crystal’s master cutter and he has been behind many of the brand’s trademark handmade and intricately designed glass works. The Prestige is Waterford Crystal’s recognition to one of its masters, the true artists behind every Waterford Crystal item. The Prestige item is inspired by eighteenth-century Dublin architecture. It is a play of patterns moving around seemingly layers of sculpted glass. It is a true reflection of Jim O’Leary’s art and his fine workmanship.

The A-team of craftsmen

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:00:00 PM in Waterford Crystal (39)

What go into your Waterford Crystal item? A team of master craftsmen dedicated to excel in their craft. The beach and pear wood are chiseled into perfect molds by a master carver using age-old techniques. The red-hot glowing glass of ball slowly takes shape in the hands of a professional glassblower. His every move is precise, culled from skills that have been passed down through centuries of glassmaking perfection. Meantime, a sculptor transforms the glass into a three-dimensional art piece. Ever careful and detailed in his work, he will take weeks, even months, to complete one work. The glass cutter is just as committed to excellence, using just the right pressure for wedge or flat cutting.

Why the seahorse wins!

Posted by Schiffman's at 12:30:00 PM in Waterford Crystal (39)

Crystal lovers from glassware to art décor know well that the Waterford Crystal seahorse icon represents one of the world’s coveted glass brands. A glass collection is never complete without a Waterford Crystal among the collectibles. Yet perhaps not many know the story behind the seahorse. In 1947, Waterford Crystal needed an icon to represent its distinct glass label. The sea creature in the Waterford City’s coat of arms (Ireland) easily inspired the label. But the sea creature in the coat of arms was hardly identifiable. Some believed it’s a dolphin; others a seahorse. So why did the seahorse win? Because the male gets pregnant, the chief designer said. It is a unique and rare characteristic in the world, something a Waterford Crystal glassware also exudes.

60 Years of Elegance and Counting

Posted by Schiffman's at 11:00:00 AM in Waterford Crystal (39)


Waterford presents its Colleen 60th Anniversary Collection. Yes, you are right. Waterford Crystal, renowned glass and stemware manufacturer from Ireland, has been around longer than that. But this year, its legendary cut pattern reaches its 60th year in production and popular circulation. It was 60 years ago when Mirolslav Havel carved out the beautiful Colleen patterns that captured the romance, charm and magic of Georgian Time Emerald Isle. This pattern may have already adorned glasses that held the choice drinks long before (some of) our parents started kindergarten; such a long time indeed, when you think of it that way.  The commemorative crystal pieces include limited edition creations from no less than the designers of Waterford’s House of Crystal.  The designs honor the time-tested pattern that continues to win the hearts of many even as the ages roll by.
