“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
On a recent trip to the British Isles, Butch and I spent some time in Waterford, Ireland. The most famous crystal in the world, Waterford, takes its name from the city where its history began in 1783. The company has undergone many changes over the years. In 1986 Waterford acquired Wedgwood, the prestigious company specializing since 1759 in exquisite bone china and earthenware. With the most recent change in July, Fiskars Corporation acquired the group of companies, Waterford, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton, Royal Albert, and Rogaska. Hopefully, this beautiful crystal will continue its history in Waterford, Ireland!
We spent time at the House of Waterford Crystal which included a guided tour of the manufacturing process and a beautiful retail store with the largest collection of Waterford crystal in the world. The store had a gorgeous tablescape set with exquisite Waterford and Wedgwood. Of course, I took photos with the idea of sharing with you all. Please forgive me for not listing all the patterns in the setting, but I couldn’t take the time to catalog all of that info. I think I had pushed my sweet husband’s patience long enough!
Vera Wang “Grosgrain” by Wedgwood! The bone china is inspired by the subtle romantic touches that Wang uses to trim her world-famous bridal gowns! The platinum border trim is reminiscent of delicate needle lace.
