The most popular Waterford cut-crystal stemware pattern is Lismore. It was created by the company's designer, Miroslav Havel, in 1952. The Lismore design notably features smooth cuts.
A few other designs that are popular include Alana and Colleen. Alana is admired by collectors who like an abundance of crystal cuts. A crystal bubble decorates the stem of Colleen glassware.
Waterford is known to be the highest quality Irish crystal available. It has been used in chandeliers in places such as Windsor Castle, Westminster Abbey and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The crystal ball that drops on New Year's Eve in Times Square is made from Waterford crystal.
