Always recognized for the quality of its wares, Waterford Crystal is one of our oldest manufacturers. In 1783, George and William Penrose opened the Flint Glass Works near the quay in the harbor town of Waterford, Ireland. Ironically, the brothers were not glass makers, but exporters. But from the outset, the brothers demonstrated real business savvy. They petitioned Parliament for government subsidies and began to woo the aristocracy of Ireland and England as a market. In 1788, Waterford produced a crystal service as a gift to her Majesty, Charlotte Sophia, wife to King George III. The King and Queen were so charmed by the crystal that they ordered the set to be displayed at Cheltenham castle. Although the Penroses later sold the business and the old Flint Glass Works were closed altogether in 1851, the Waterford legend was born. Ultimately a new factory was opened almost 100 years to the day after the closing of the old facility. Today Waterford Crystal is the pride of the Irish export trade. Its apprentice program ensures that Waterford will continue to develop some of the finest craftsmen in the world.
