The Penrose brothers opened the first glassmaking factory in Waterford in 1783, where their work was immediately recognized for its clarity and purity of color. They enjoyed success well into the 1800’s. However, after 70 years of operating, the Penrose brothers' glass making factory fell victim to a turn of events that echo today’s business woes -- in 1853.
After a period of dormancy, the Waterford story resumes in 1947, when glassmaker Kael Bacik hired fellow Czech Miroslav Havel as Chief Designer for his fledgling glassmaking operation in Ireland. Havel spent many hours at the National Museum of Ireland studying surviving examples of the Penrose brothers’ crystal from the 18th and 19th centuries. The traditional cutting patterns made famous by the artisans of Waterford became the design basis for the growing product range of the new company, and it is from these designs in 1952 that Havel created the now iconic Lismore , which remains the world’s best-selling crystal pattern.
Marquis line offers innovative crystal patterns with designs ranging from contemporary to traditional, with lighter, simpler lines that reflect a modern sensibility. Each piece of elegant stemware and giftware accessories is finely crafted under the meticulous eye and exacting standards of Waterford.
Here we have a lovely Marquis Bedside Water Set which includes a water bottle, rocks glass and silver plate tray. Each piece of crystal is elegant and begs for a new bedside to serve.
Exceptional set in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches. Very very minor wear on the silver plate tray. It may appear more pronounced due to the macro lens used for the photography. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. Dimensions are below.
