It is abstract design of a seahorse.It makes a lovely gift for anyone. The gorgeous 10-inch Seahorse Abstract candlestick is part of Waterford's second edition Classic Crystal Collection; it was designed to contrast with the more explicitly illustrative 8-inch Seahorse candlesticks. Waterford has been making renowned crystal pieces for more than 200 years, and the centuries of craftsmanship are clearly displayed in this series inspired by the seahorse, a creature with ancient, mythical significance. The Seahorse pattern is based on the crest adopted more than a decade ago to represent the Irish seaside location of the Waterford company. This statuesque candlestick, which would be lovely on a mantel or as part of the center display on a dining table, is wrapped with two long, undulating vertical cuts, which in turn are interwoven with fields of diamond cuts for a scintillating sense of wavelike motion.
The base swirls with a skirt-like look--a semicircle defines one side while the other bursts with half of the 16-rayed star that is a signature mark on other Seahorse pieces. To preserve its clarity, do not wash Waterford crystal in the dishwasher; harsh detergent and excessive heat could permanently etch surface of glass. Wash with a mild liquid soap in warm (not hot) water. Certain water may leave a lime or mineral deposit on the crystal; if that happens, vinegar on a soft, nonabrasive cloth will help remove the deposit.
Rinse with warm water and polish with a lint-free cloth. Edges and rims are delicate; do not store upside down or place upside down on a draining board. Crystal can focus sunlight into a concentrated beam that could potentially scorch rugs or furniture, so do not store or display in direct sunlight. Do not allow candle to burn down to within one inch of candlestick; the heat could damage the crystal. The candlestick is 10 inches tall with a 5-inch base; it takes standard 7/8-inch taper candles.

For centuries the Irish have been supreme artists in glass. It is one of the great traditions in the realm of art, a tradition founded on patient and meticulous hand craftsmanship. The skill of Irish hands is only part of the story - there is also an uncanny power in those hands to impart something magical to glass.
And in all of Ireland, no hands have been more patient, more meticulous, or more blessed with the elusive powers of art than the hands of Waterford crystal's craftsmen. When the brothers George and William Penrose founded the Waterford Glass House in 1783, they made a bold promise - to make Waterford crystal in as fine a quality as any in Europe in the most elegant style. It was no idle boast.
They had in hand the old secrets of mingling minerals and glass to create Waterford crystal of beautiful and mysterious qualities. It sang sweetly at the tap of a finger. It felt soft and warm to the touch yet possessed strength and durability known only to Waterford crystal.
And it radiated a distinctive, silvery white brilliance, which Waterford Crystal's artists enhanced with deeply - cut ornamentation that gave the finished pieces a vivacious, traditional Waterford crystal sparkle. This great tradition lay dormant for a hundred years. But when Irish independence rekindled a passion for Irish arts in the 1940s and 1950s, a group of businessmen resolved to bring back to life the industry that had made the city of Waterford famous. They recruited a small band of hand - picked artists, and under the guidance of these masters, young apprentices learned the intricacies of the art of crysta l.
