What you need to know:
William Yeoward Crystal came into existence in 1995, the result of a remarkable collaboration between Timothy Jenkins and William Yeoward.
William Yeoward, already a noted designer working in the field of furniture, lighting, fabrics, and interior accessories, with a store on London’s fashionable King’s Road, was an avid collector of antique crystal, but felt that there was little contemporary crystal that was truly beautiful. Timothy Jenkins, third generation in the family owned crystal business John Jenkins, founded in 1901, had an intimate knowledge of the European crystal industry and for some years had been making reproductions of antique pieces.
A chance meeting in 1993 brought Timothy Jenkins and William Yeoward together and they quickly found that they shared a passion for the beautiful crystal of the 18th and 19th Centuries and both wished that these wonderful pieces could once again be created and preserved for posterity. They decided to work together to create a new collection of Crystal that combined some of the best design elements of the Georgian period with modern technological advances in crystal making, to create completely new handmade pieces that were beautiful in themselves but practical and useful for today. A key decision was to incorporate wherever possible some of the styles of cutting and hand engraving that make antique crystal so appealing, while at the same time creating functional and contemporary pieces.
