Purchase a lead crystal animal figurine from the area where the making of
lead crystal glass first began. Turkey has been involved in crafting
crystal figurines for many centuries. Small workshops in towns and
villages are the settings where the crystal animal figurine is created in
a variety of designs. Today the dolphin is one of the most popular as a
crystal animal figurine.

The art of creating lead crystal glass figurines has not changed
significantly throughout the many centuries. The process begins with the
craftsman melting the molten glass ingredients in a furnace. A wooden
mould is also used to shape the glass. After the craftsman inspects the
crystal figurine he is creating and finds that this step is finished, he
then lets it cool for 36-48 hours.

After the crystal animal figurine has cooled for the specific period of
time, the craftsman uses an emery stone to facet the surface. This gives
the lead crystal piece its beautiful reflective qualities. He then adds
any specific details he wants to see in the crystal. Many of the crystal
animal figurines are left smooth, but there may be details that need to
be added to the figurine, such as eyes. This process is how Turkish
crystal figurines are made and these workshops are noted for their
attention to detail and perfection in the pieces they produce.

Although a Turkish crystal animal figurine can be expensive, it is well
worth what you pay for it. They are true works of art that you will
certainly want to add to your collection. A lead crystal figurine of any
design in your curio cabinet carries with it the centuries of history
that developed its creation. You can look at it and know that the work
that went into its creation is a time honored tradition from the past
that is still used in the present, in spite of all the new technology
that has since been developed.

When you have a crystal animal figurine crafted in lead crystal glass you
can consider yourself lucky. Today there is a strong demand for crystal
animal figurines made in Turkey, from many other parts of the world. The
quality of today’s crystal figurines is just as superior as it was
hundreds of years ago.
