Description

Don't miss out on the chance to own this beautiful Shannon Lead Crystal Sutton Place Pedestal Bowl is 11 inches tall and made from white sand and clear glass.

Geologically, Ireland is well suited for the manufacturing of Shannon Crystal. The Kindle Crystal website states that early glass made from sand often resulted in a greenish hue due to the presence of iron. In Ireland, However, craftsmen had access to the white sand found in the Wicklow Mountains, which was very pure and created the clear glass that formed the bases of crystal making.

In the 17th Century, a process vital to the development of crystals was patented, states the Irish Culture and Customs website. The English glass maker George Ravenscroft discovered that by adding lead oxide to molten glass, he could create a rock solid, sparkling substance that was soft enough to carve. Thus lead crystal was born.

In 1685, the edict of Nates was revoked by the French King, Louis XIV, and Great Britain and Ireland saw a surge of French and Flemish immigrants who brought their trades with them. One of those trades was glass making.

Shannon is located in Western Ireland. ShannonAirport.com describes the area as a region steeped in culture. It is the birthplace of traditional music and the home of The Cliffs of Moher, the top visitor attraction. Shannon Crystal is one of several crystal design companies with Irish roots. Others include Waterford and Heritage Crystal. The company has a catalogue of beautiful lead crystal, offering products from candlesticks, to vases and decanters.

Although you can still purchase Shannon Crystal, it is now a department of Waterford Crystal according to Shannoncrystal.net. The Schannon Crystal plant is located in the Czech Republic.
