Waterford Crystal Lismore – How to check the authenticity of the beautiful crystal

After having a look on to the Title of this article, 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.

There are many people who could not differentiate between the two and got the fake one by thinking them as the true Waterford Crystal Lismore item. Many times, when people go to some glass item repairing center with their items, there the expert let them know about the authenticity of the item. Otherwise, since many years they were using that by thinking that as the original Waterford crystal.

The first and the foremost thing, you should look is the stem for the Lismore designs. Please ensure yourself about the sides of the stem are cut and not left blank by looking into the glass. Check for the star burst at the bottom of the base, this star burst is a sixteen point star. The end of the sixteen points of the star burst should come out about a quarter inch on the base. This may vary as per the shapes of the glass and the way they were blown.

Now, when these fake companies were producing the fake items, they do not have any way to do the flat cutting of the stem on items like Goblets, Flutes etc, and if they do so they give the poor effect and sometimes the rough spots, waves and ridges. Also, they do not have the star burst, which will immediately tell you that the item is not of Waterford Crystal Lismore.
