Buying Guide

A crystal lamp will bring sophistication to any living space or foyer. However, a lead crystal lamp containing 23% to 33% lead oxide will show off your immaculate taste in fine furnishings. The right base and shade will compliment the sparkle.

More expensive than cut glass or crystal, the difference comes from changing the calcium content to lead oxide during the manufacturing process. This causes a refraction of light, lending more clarity and brightness of the glass. Lead crystal uses lead oxide which changes the dynamics of the chemical structure. The result is a softer material that is usually cut into facets instead of rounded edges as commonly seen in non-lead crystal.

  • Lead Crystal - All crystal is made from manganese, soda, silica sand and lime. Lead crystal goes one step further to include lead oxide that actually makes the glass sparkle. There may be additional minerals added for specific color tones. Some of these include saltpeter, borax or arsenic.
  • Brass - Brass bases and ornaments compliment lead crystal by adding substance and an enhanced backdrop of sophistication.
  • Polished Chrome - A reflection of the crystal can be seen with a polished chrome base.
  • Wood - A way to bring transitional beauty into many different decors.
  • Linen Shades - Linen offers a shadow of light while highlighting the crystal.

A lead crystal lamp is very delicate. Compare the quality to a fine oil painting. Regular weekly cleaning is recommended by using a blow dryer to shake off any dust particles. If dusting is preferred, use a feather duster with no chemicals or a dry cloth for gentle wiping. Harsh cleaners should never come into contact with lead crystal.

The fabric lamp shade should be vacuumed or brushed with a magnetic dust collecting device.

Lead crystal is heavier than regular crystal. Take this into consideration when placing a lead crystal on an end table or bedside table. Depending on the percentage of lead oxide used, a lead crystal lamp can weigh 18% to 40% more than a glass-cut model.

  • Lamp Height - Measure the table height. Your total lamp height should be no more than 1 1/2 times this number.
  • Lamp Width - The lamp shade width will be in balance with the base if it is within 2" of the total base length. For instance, if your base length measures 20", the diameter of the shade should be 18" to 22".

Lead crystal lamps were once reserved for formal areas and traditional designs. However, almost any decor can now support the elegance of a lead crystal lamp with the proper design, base, and shade. A pair of tall crystal lamps may support a long foyer console in contemporary or modern beauty. Romanticize a master bedroom with small crystal lamps sporting matching crystal shades.

Keep lead crystal lamps away from busy family rooms or areas where traffic is heavy for better longevity and lasting beauty.
