When the Vikings invaded Waterford they appreciated its strategic value as a major trading port. Both dry and wet goods were shipped by barrel. The barrel makers or "Coopers" as the trade was known continued their craft right up to the 20th century.
The design of Cooper Bottle Stopper for Cashs Ireland, invokes the memory of the craftsmen and the part they played in Waterford Ireland's history. Two horizontal bands of tight diamond cutting represent the metal hoops that bind a barrel holding it secure. Placed between these are long and short upright cuts denoting the wooden staves from which the barrel is formed.
Since 1976 Cashs of Ireland has been synonymous with fine crystal and gifts, all fashioned in traditional ways by skilled Irish craftsmen.
For generations, these Irish craftsmen have passed their knowledge of the ancient art of crystal making and cutting from father to son. Cashs artisans have dedicated their lives to their craft, and their city of Waterford, Ireland. Cashs Crystal is hand cut, where possible, and polished to perfection according to centuries old techniques.
