Waterford Kilbarry Pens - In 1783, two brothers, George and William Penrose, founded the Waterford Glass House in the ancient Viking city of Waterford. Thus began the tradition of making crystal in "as fine a quality as any in Europe...in the most elegant style". Now Waterford has fine writing instruments. A great gift for any special occasion. The name Waterford is known throughout the world for fine crystal and quality pens.
