2006 SPECIAL EDITION MOUSE - ONLY 335 PIECES IN THE WORLD!!!

Not much is known about this special mouse other than it is believed to have been a special project of Mr Paul Swarovski and 335 pieces were produced. It is also believed that it was a gift given to some European retailers.

It does bear the Swarovski swan logo, but it doesn’t appear to have ever been given an official Swarovski part number or system number, and we have only ever seen them unboxed.

REPLICA MOUSE GOLDEN SHADOW - AN EMPLOYEE EXCLUSIVE

A special edition replica mouse in Golden Shadow crystal was given to Swarovski employees to celebrate the 40th anniversary of CGB (which we believe is “Consumer Goods Business”). The mouse is the same design and size as the original replica mouse, the AB mouse and the dark green mouse which was a Wattens only issue.

The base of the piece is stamped “40 years CGB”. It is thought that all corporate employees received the mouse. The mouse was issued in 2016, and the code number is 5244443.

BLOOMINGDALES EXCLUSIVE NEW YORK APPLE - LITTLE BROWN BAG TAG

It looks just like the New York apple in small size, but there is a big difference!

Instead of the metal NY tag on the New York apple, each Bloomingdale's exclusive apple has a metal tag featuring the iconic "Little Brown Bag". The Bloomingdale's apple has its own Swarovski code number which is 5370853.

Bloomingdales commissioned the small size apple to sell exclusively in their stores - we do not know how many were made, but they appear to be sold out.

Around 80 new designs are being launched across those 2 dates and there are some wonderful surprises along the way.

Christmas (annual) ornaments:

More Chinese Exclusives

We have just discovered 2 new ornaments which are available exclusively in the Greater China area. They are identical to the Christmas ornaments available elsewhere in both gold and clear versions, but the Chinese ones are available in Aurora Borealis (AB) crystal. Shame they are not more widely available as they look great in AB crystal!
