JUlia the 24% is considered the minimum standard for Lead content to make real "Crystal".  Firms like Stuart & Waterford used to be 30% or 33% and I suspect Whitefriars was up there too.  Hence a Waterford decanter like yours would be even heavier.  Bohemia has had 24% as its standard for many years.
