The Prestige Boat Bowl comes from Waterford Crystal’s Master Cutter collection. Behind every piece of Waterford is a story of skill, craft and tradition. It takes at least eight years to become a master cutter, and this is a collection that was made specifically by artisans who had reached the pinnacle of their careers as master cutters. It was launched in the 80s and was still available through the 90s. The collection was made by craftsmen using traditional methods and techniques; they used wooden tools, shaped the molten crystal by hand, and cut it slowly under a steady stream of water with a copper wheel. It’s a true testament to the timelessness of Waterford Crystal. (Available to buy here)
