‘Shannon’ crystal candle sticks.
Ireland is home to some of the world’s most impressive crystal designs, among them ‘Shannon’ crystal. The craft of Irish crystal making is an art form that has been developed and modified over hundreds of years, going back as far as the Celts, who brought the first glass to Ireland in for jewelry making.
