Waterford Crystal Clarendon
The Waterford Clarendon pattern features elongated olive and strawberry cuts. The Strawberry diamond cut at the base of the bowl on all Clarendon Glasses, flute, hock and martini is in clear crystal and reaches from the stem joint to about a third way up the bowl. The upper two thirds is incased in colour and is cut with the olive cutting technique. Often considered to be the most difficult of all crystal cuts because it relies heavily on only one dimension and that is width. The thickness of the crystal is of paramount importance and the ability to judge width, depth and height makes it a cut only attempted by the most experienced craftsman cutters. The result of this intricate cutting technique is a glass which will sparkle and shimmer like no other. Clarendon is available in three colourways, ruby red, cobalt blue and emerald green. Often given as gifts, the ruby red collection is perfect to celebrate a 40th anniversary. Each style of glass, flute, hock or martini is supplied as a pair in a Waterford Crystal Gift Box. Waterford Crystal Clarendon is available at Kings and Queens at 20% below normal retail price.
