Nature-Inspired Swarovski Lead Crystal Glass

I made these images from a sparkling window display of the Swarovski boutique on 625 Madison Avenue. Swarovski is the luxury brand name for the range of precision-cut lead crystal glass and related products produced by Swarovski AG of Wattens, Austria. In 1892, Daniel Swarovski patented an electric cutting machine that facilitated the production of lead crystal glass jewellery.
The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers. One focus for Swarovski has been on all things "green," including the nature-inspired designs in the objects prominently displayed in their store windows. The Swarovski flagship boutique is located at Rockefeller Center.
