Synonymous with luxury and fine living, the Waterford Crystal Lismore pattern has been Waterford's pre-eminent design for 60 years. Derived from the Gaelic lios more, meaning great ringfort, Lismore was inspired by the gothic architecture of the 800 year-old Lismore Castle in County Waterford, Ireland. Ancestral home to England's Dukes of Devonshire since the 18th century, the famed castle overlooks the beautiful Muster countryside of the Irish coast. Influenced by the 18th century crystal designs of Waterford founders George and William Penrose, Waterford Crystal designer Miroslav Havel created the Lismore pattern in 1953. The pattern features refined diamond cuts- a signature of early Penrose designs- and a symmetrical series of upward flowing wedge cuts. The clarity of the crystal combined with the refraction of light through the cutting created what the world now treasures- the enduring allure of Lismore.
