Introduced by the Westmorland Glass Company in the 1950's as "Irish Waterford" and was made in clear glass only. By the 1960's, Westmorland began to offer this pattern with the Ruby Staining application. At this time, the name was change to "Waterford", which is what the pattern is most commonly referred to by collectors today. Once the interest was renewed, the company introduced more contemporary colours, and the production of this pattern continued in the 1970's. Colours that can be found, but are often scarce include laurel green, pink, green, cystal with yellow stain, brandywine blue, butterscotch, milk glass, bermuda blue, purple, olive green and golden sunset (orange).
In this pattern, there was also an extensive production of Fairy Lamps, that can be found in any colour imaginable. This includes hand painting, various coloured stains, coloured opaque glass and a variety of carnival glass colours.
