Irish Cut Glass circa 1790 from Waterford, Dublin & Cork. Why were these collected by the museum? What makes something significant in a collection? What provenance should we be looking for or keeping to add value to a collection? Keeper of Art & Industry Dr Audrey Whitty will discuss both historical & contemporary objects in the @nationalmuseumofireland and answer all the questions during our Symposium on May 23rd 2018 - What why and where of provenance.

Despite Saturday’s ‘Run for the Roses’, I managed to rake together a tidy little trove of sparkling antique and vintage Irish crystal from sources throughout the bucolic (though torrentially rainy) countryside—I’m told the rainiest Kentucky Derby Day on record! These pretty pieces are being quickly spoken for (after all, wedding season *is* upon us!), although this ultra cool, sleek late-Edwardian/early-Deco tray is staying home with me, I’m afraid. Isn’t this tray veritably pleading for coupes or flutes of crisp, ice-cold Champagne and a tin of caviar with Mother of Pearl spoons and points of toast with egg or bottles and bar fruit on a white linen cloth upon a grassy emerald lawn? Ah, Spring!
#waterfordcrystal boasts a strong and proud history of craftsmanship and beauty. We are so proud to be called upon when their ambassador is in Milwaukee. Flowers are truly the only thing to accent or compare to the light captured by quality #crystal
What a superlative mouth-blown, hand-cut scalloped-edge bowl by Heritage Irish Crystal; fresh from a glorious country house estate near Nashville, Tennessee, this piece will elevate, and illuminate, even quite-fine collections—that is, if anyone can pry it out of my clinched fists and claim it from me as their own!
