Lismore Castle in County Waterford, Ireland.

Many years ago, 60 to be precise, Waterford Crystal introduced what has become known as the cream of the crops of  timeless stemware - Lismore. That’s right, our favorite stemware, inspired by 18th century gothic architecture of the 800-year-old Lismore Castle in County Waterford, Ireland, took root. The Lismore pattern was created by Waterford Crystal designer Miroslav Havel in 1952. Lismore, the icon of crystal, the envy  of fine glass, commands the world. Its signature, the crisp diamond cuts, tells of early Penrose design. Its allure stems from symmetrical upward flowing wedge cuts. Step in, for a moment, into the esteemed shoes of a connoisseur of ornamental crystallized quartz, and take in the utter beauty and sheer wisdom of such skillful art. Appreciate the effect of technical construction to produce tableware which mirrors architecture of yore. Lismore brings us all forms of tableware and each piece we see is more enchanting than the next!
