As innovative as it is sublime, this award-winning light source was an immediate standout on its debut during its 2012 launch in Milan and London, where it swept awards and critical acclaim for the young designer behind it, Lee Brown.

Each bulb is individually hand blown by the very last producer of handmade English full lead crystal, Cumbria Crystal.

This was essential to Lee, whose mission is to collaborate with craftsman in his native England.

The full-lead crystal bulb is hand cut with a traditional crystal pattern and etched with the Lee Broom logo.

Fits any standard E27 lamp, wall, or ceiling fitting.

Looks stunning solo or in a group, and is available alone or with a brushed brass pendant fitting that also comes engraved with the Lee Broom crest and with a gold silk flex (a.k.a. cable).

Despite its classic styling, this is a modern incarnation of Lee’s original collection of vintage crystal decanters repurposed as lighting.

Life expectancy of LED: 45,000 hours (longer than yours).

So Nina Churchill it's not even funny.
