FrontRunners: Bowl Games

  • Waterford Prestige Skyline Bowl

    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.
