Waterford Crystal Christmas Trees
Waterford Crystal Founded by George and William Penrose
When the brothers George and William Penrose founded the Waterford Glass House in 1783, they made a bold promise - to make crystal in "as fine a quality as any in Europe in the most elegant style." They had in hand the old secrets of mingling minerals and glass to create a crystal of beautiful and mysterious qualities and radiated a distinctive, silvery white brilliance, which Waterford's artists enhanced with deeply - cut ornamentation that gave the finished pieces a vivacious sparkle.
Waterford Crystal - The Times Square Tradition
Since 1904, New York City's Times Square has captured the world's attention each New Year's Eve as millions unite to count down the final seconds of the year. New Year's Eve 2007 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Times Square New Year's Eve Ball drop.
Waterford Crystal, creators of the spectacular crystal ball that has descended on the "crossroads of the world" since the millennium celebration on New Year's Eve 1999, celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the ball drop with a magnificent new ball design for 2008 and the equally dazzling Waterford Crystal Times Square Ball 100th Anniversary Collection.
Beginning with Let There Be Light, Waterford designers have created a signature cut crystal design for each edition that will be incorporated into the new Waterford Crystal Times Square Ball. The inaugural image, Let There Be Light, is a dramatically stylized radiating sunburst reminiscent of fireworks. This distinctive pattern is replicated in fine commemorative holiday ornaments and crystal giftware.
The World of Celebrations, the new Waterford Crystal Times Square commemorative series, honors the many ways the world rejoices, with iconic symbols showcasing universal meaning. Subsequent annual releases in the Times Square series, as well as their respective symbols, will include:
2008: Let There Be Light, Fireworks
2009: Let There Be Joy, Bells Ringing
2010: Let There Be Courage, Ribbon
2011: Let There Be Love, Hearts
2012: Let There Be Friendship, Pineapple Cuts
2013: Let There Be Peace, Burst of Doves
Celebrate the time-honored tradition of the New York City Times Square New Year's Eve ball drop and cherish memories with a commemorative Waterford Crystal piece. Whether you experience the event first hand or watch from afar, the world celebrates New Year's Eve with Waterford Crystal and Times Square.
