The Waterford Crystal is a well known manufacturer of crystal pieces. It is named after the city of Waterford, located in Ireland. Waterford Crystal is owned by WWRD Group Holdings Ltd., a luxury goods group which also owns and operates the Wedgwood and Royal Doulton brands.

Could you tell me the number and type of dishes that you have?

I don't see any markings on the piece.

I have other pieces if I could add them to this post?
Expert:  rusufdavi replied 1 year ago.

All the Waterford crystal pieces were originally marked, but sometimes the mark is difficult to see. The easiest way is to hold the glass up to a bright light and turn it slowly until the etching appears in a brilliant sparkle of light. the etching, made with acid, is the way they marked the pieces. Could you see the mark?

I can't see the mark on the bowl. boo, my sister was sold these as Waterford.
Expert:  rusufdavi replied 1 year ago.

The main problem is that without the mark, the set cannot be identified as an Original Waterford crystal set.

are you sure there is no mark in any of the dishes?
