A Note About The Manufacturer:
Wedgwood crystal is a brand of the Waterford Wedgwood Group.
Wedgwood crystal is developed by some of the finest designers in all of Europe. Indeed, customer surveys rate Wedgwood Crystal as equal to world-renowned Waterford Crystal in terms of appearance, delicacy, durability, and value. Since Wedgwood and Waterford are owned by the same parent company, many crystal designers work for both firms simultaneously.
Given that Wedgwood and Waterford have persisted as industry-leading brands for so long, it is no surprise that many collectors prize early Wedgwood Crystal pieces as antiques.
Waterford Crystal itself traces its roots to Waterford, Ireland in 1873 when businessmen George and William Penrose founded the Waterford Glass House and began to make crystal in "as fine a quality as any in Europe in the most elegant style."
Until recently, Waterford Crystal had very strong links with its illustrious history. There was the same dedication to the purity of color, to the same design inspiration and to the same pursuit of highest quality levels possible. The traditional cutting patterns made famous by the artisans of Waterford became the design basis for the growing product range of the new company.
In 1986, Waterford merged with world-respected Wedgwood, maker of fine bone china, to create the Waterford Wedgwood Group. To this line was added Royal Doulton.
