J.HILL’s STANDARD. A recently established manufacturer of handcrafted and mouth-blown crystal glassware from Waterford, Ireland. Due to a shortage of skilled labour and the decline of the industry, only a few glass blowers and crystal cutters are left in Ireland. Despite the challenges, J. Hill’s Standard is committed to preserving the rich heritage of crystal glassware manufacturing in the region.
