3D3DBroken leaded glass vase.
This vase arrived broken, which normally might be a problem, but I actually kind of like it this way, as a lead sample. It was advertised as 24% lead crystal (by which is meant glass). This is typical for the lead content of this type of high-index-of-refraction glass. Kind of neat that you can see right through something that is one quarter lead.
