The Seahorse 10″ Bowl is a follow-up to the profoundly successful Seahorse 10″ Vase in Waterford Crystal Classic Collection
The gorgeous 10-inch Seahorse crystal bowl is part of Waterford’s second edition Classic Crystal Collection; it was designed to accompany the matching 10-inch Seahorse vase. Waterford has been making renowned crystal pieces for more than 200 years, and the centuries of craftsmanship are clearly displayed in this series inspired by the seahorse, a creature with ancient, mythical significance. The Seahorse pattern is based on the crest adopted more than a decade ago to represent the Irish seaside location of the Waterford company.
This large bowl, perfect for a lovely fruit display on a formal table, is cut with broad, swirling wedge cuts, punctuated with smaller olive cuts for a sense of upward motion. Between the wedges are fields of raised diamond shapes, with modified rosettes encircling the undulating, scalloped rim of the bowl to symbolize the trident of Neptune, Roman god of the sea. A 16-rayed star is cut into the base of the bowl.
To preserve its clarity, do not wash Waterford crystal in the dishwasher; harsh detergent and excessive heat could permanently etch surface of glass. Wash the bowl with a mild liquid soap in warm (not hot) water. Certain water may leave a lime or mineral deposit on the crystal; if that happens, vinegar on a soft, nonabrasive cloth will help remove the deposit. Rinse with warm water and polish with a lint-free cloth. Edges and rims are delicate; do not store upside down or place upside down on a draining board. Crystal can focus sunlight into a concentrated beam that could potentially scorch rugs or furniture, so do not store or display in direct sunlight. The bowl measures 10 inches in diameter, 5 inches deep, and 6 inches tall including the base. –Garland Withers
