We all know the old Waterford Crystal History but did you know that the most popular Waterford Crystal pattern “Lismore” was designed in the early fifties by a Czech from Czechoslovakia . His name was Miraslov Havel and his Son Brian has written a book called Maestro of Crystal about the trials and tribulations of how this famous designer Dad came to make Waterford Crystal what it is today. Mr Havel is also credited for designing other patterns including Sheila, Hibernia and many many more…
I think that you will agree that when you hear his Son Brian talk about his Dad in this video, that he was well loved by the Irish people, a country where he called Ireland his home. Please watch the video and leave a comment below.
