Waterford LightingWATERFORD LIGHTING "To make a crystal in as fine a quality as any...in the most elegant style," has been the Waterford ideal as set forth in 1783 by the founders, George and William Penrose, who established what would become the finest and most prestigious crystal manufacturer in the world.
Waterford chandeliers hang in well-known buildings like Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey,
and the Kennedy Center,
and they have made the crystals for the famous New Year's Eve Ball that is dropped each year in New York City's Times Square. The ball is a 1,070 pound geodesic orb, six feet in diameter and is lit by 600 clear and colored high-intensity halogen bulbs and 96 halogen strobe lights.
