Pens and Ephemera

Waterford is best known as the Irish makers of some of the best leaded-crystal goods on earth. It branched out for a while to also make pens. Perhaps not as glamorous as its wine glasses, champagne flutes, wine decanters, bowls and other objects d'arte, Waterford pens have a loyal following.
