William Yeoward Crystal started in 1995 when third generation John Jenkins owner, Timothy Jenkins, and noted interior accessories designer William Yeoward collaborated. William Yeoward had been working with lighting, fabrics, furniture and interior accessories in his store in London on King’s Road. He was an antique crystal enthusiast, but thought that there was a lack of beautiful contemporary crystal. Timothy Jenkins is a third generation owner of the crystal company, John Jenkins, which was founded in 1901. Jenkins has a fine knowledge of the crystal industry in Europe and has been recreating antique pieces for some time.
