FrontRunners: Bowl Games

Depictions of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and other landmarks that athletes and spectators might visit while they are in London for the Summer Olympics are etched on the $8,000 Prestige Skyline Bowl. Part of the Waterford London 2012 collection (www.waterford.com), the bowl is limited to 30 examples, each of which is crafted in the 229-year-old crystal company’s new headquarters in Waterford, Ireland. The collection also includes limited-edition tumblers, Champagne flutes, vases, and centerpieces—all made and engraved by hand.
