OK the Heritage Crystal Cathedral Wine Carafe is not inexpensive. But just consider this - this Crystal Carafe is mouth blown and entirely hand cut by highly skilled cutters using diamond tipped wheels.
All this is happening in a factory in Waterford the home of high quality crystal manufacture.
The feel and look of the crystal takes me back to when I was first introduced to hand cut crystal, after all the UK had world wide renown for the quality of craftsmanship and product.
Heritage Irish Crystal was founded in Waterford City Ireland in 1990 by Joe Williams. Joe had worked and learnt his trade at the world famous Waterford Crystal Glass factory for over 30 years and held the position of General Manger of the Glass Blowing division.
Joe could see changes in the way Crystal production was going forward, with more and more being outsourced to quality European factories where the end product was not entirely hand made.
Joe could see a gap in the market of continuing to craft entirely hand made crystal glass. He devised a unique formulation for heavy lead crystal along with rapid melting techniques, revised angles for the glass cutters and an improved polishing process.
All of this can be seen in the finished crystal product. Just holding the glass and feeling the depth of the cut and weight of the glass exudes quality. Havens are proud to be key UK stockist's of this incomparable quality crystal product.
So now you know that you are not just buying any glass but an individual work of art.
It is as well to remember:
Long after the consideration of Price is forgotten, Quality Product continues to give pleasure.
