To ancient Mediterranean peoples, laurel stood for victory, distinction ,and merit. The Greeks and Romans wove them into crowns and gave them as honors to heroes, athletes, and great poets. The laurel wreath became one of the most enduring design motifs of all time, and it has inspired our Crystal Laurel collection of decorative lighting. Stylized crystal leaves with boldly cut facets reflect light in delicate patterns. The hand-wrought metal forms are finished in antique taupe with silver leafed accents or gold leaf.
