After
having a look on to the Title, you may be thinking that the
crystal items you have in your kitchen cabinet are not ‘fake’ and you do not
want to look into the whole text of the article. Here, I am writing some of the
facts regarding the authenticity of the beautiful Waterford Crystal Lismore.
Have a look into it and check what you bought. This will also help you next
time you go to purchase the beautiful crystal.

I do
not know whether you are aware about the incident happened during the eighties
and the nineties, in which lot of companies got shut down by the FBI in USA and
Europe for producing the fake Waterford Crystal items. These companies copied
the designs of the popular patterns of Waterford Crystal Lismore, Colleen,
Alana, Kathleen and many others. Most of them are the stemware like Goblets,
Flutes, Hocks, White wine and the Sherries.


Items
like Bowls, Vases, Decanters and mainly single gift items were involved in the
production by these counterfeit companies. Most of the items are having a stem
as that was a fair game to play. It is really very tough to determine how many
such pieces are in circulation in United States but the approximate number is
into millions. You can find more information on this by searching on Google on
“NY times Counterfeit Fake Irish Waterford“ and see the report.


It is
not that after this incident and shutting down of several companies, people
stopped this lucrative business. No sooner those counterfeit companies got shut
down when some other pop up into the market with some other name. In today’s
market also, if you go to find you will get lot of them.

Waterford Lismore Wine Glass and its types

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51w-EucPVeL._SL500_.jpgBasically,
there are four types of wine glasses; red, white sparkling and desert. You can
read the basic information regarding these four here below. Usually, all the
wine glasses have three basic components; a base, a stem and a bowl. There are
some stemless wine glasses also for the red and the white wine pioneered by
some experts. Base made the glass to stand upright; stem allows maintaining the
wine temperature by making you hold the glass from the stem and not the bowl.

Wine glass
shape and size differs depending on the type of wine that glass is to be used
for. The shapes are made in such a way that the glass will direct the drink in
the direction of the part of the mouth where the wine will be appreciated most.
Therefore, keeping this in mind the bowl is made tapered upward having a slight
narrow opening at the top as compared to the bottom of the bowl. As a result,
this shape will help to direct the wine’s aroma to your nose and mouth.

For both red
and white wines, the bowl of the Waterford Lismore wine glass is large so as to
swirl the wine and making the wine more in contact with the air to release the
aroma to a large extent.

A red Waterford Lismore wine glass is fuller and rounder having a large opening
to allow the drinker to detect the aroma by dipping his nose into the glass
while drinking. This is a value addition to the taste of the wine.  This wine requires both Bordeaux and Burgundy
glass; a Bordeaux glass is taller than the burgundy glass.
