Okay, I know what you’re thinking. What does a mass communication teacher know about Princess House Crystal, right? Well, let me put it this way. I do understand communication, and whenever I see one of the many magnificent Princess House pieces of art, I get the message – Princess House Crystal says beauty and quality!
In fact, I’ve been receiving the Princess House Crystal message of quality and fine workmanship for a very long time -- since the first time I gazed into my grandmother’s china closet and stood mesmerized by all the sparkling antique crystal pieces it contained. Truthfully, I’ve been hooked on crystal ever since, especially my favorite line – Princess House Crystal. I’ll tell you why.
You can see the quality of Princess House Crystal!
When you’re looking at a collection of Princess House Crystal, you really can see the quality of fine workmanship. The unique beauty of crystal first caught my eye as a young child and still possesses that same spell-binding magic today. What is it about a crystal tumbler or decanter that has such power to draw my eye? It must be the power of crystal to receive the rays of available light and create that dazzling array of iridescence and brilliance. Each piece of Princess House Crystal is a work of art – a feast of beauty for the eyes!
You can feel the quality of Princess House Crystal!
But the appeal of a piece of Princess House Crystal goes much deeper than what can be perceived by the eyes. It’s one you can actually touch.
Whenever you’re holding a Princess House Crystal tumbler or goblet in your hand, you can actually feel the quality. And, if you’re a real crystal enthusiast like me, you already know what I mean. You can tell if you’re holding a quality piece by just turning your hand from side to side, sensing the symmetry and balance of the item. I’ve always been intrigued by the thinness of the rim and, by contrast, the thick, substantial feel of the base. The power of touch is something that defies explanation. We gather so much information through touch. When you’re touching a piece of Princess House Crystal, you can really feel the quality!
Princess House Crystal – See and feel the quality for yourself!
So, as you might imagine, a person in my line of work soon learns to pay attention to messages gathered through sight and touch. What’s true of communication in general seems to apply doubly when examining a fine piece of art from the Princess House Crystal collection. But, as I often tell my communication students, don’t just take my word for it. See and feel the beauty and quality of Princess House Crystal for yourself! And -- unless I miss my guess -- you’ll be dazzled!
