SWAROVSKI NICK AND SPIKE HEDGEHOGS

Part of the City Parks collection of Lovlots, Nick (medium sized, copper colour) and Spike, his little brother (small and lavender) were only around from 2010 to 2011. Both designed by Anton Hirzinger, the early Lovlots had personalities and back stories. Spike is enthusiastic and bright, and loves the smell of fresh flowers, sniffing them with his cute little Jet nose. While Nick is full of energy and very observant, spending most of his time rescuing his little brother Spike!

SWAROVSKI GAGGLE OF GEESE

A plea for help from a collector regarding the Swarovski Goose family, which was available from 1993 to 1999 and all family members designed by Adi Stocker for the Barnyard Friends collection. Which one is which? Of course, while the goslings are all known by a name, this name does not appear on the box label which doesn’t help!

WORLD EGG DAY

Happy Fry-Day! Here’s a cracking, eggs-cellent and eggs-ordinary fact for you! Today is “World Egg Day” and we didn’t like to egg-nore it! How eggs-citing, it is no yolk and we’re not egg-saggerating. We are egg-stremely pleased and egg-static to picture the egg-squisite Swarovski egg paperweight and the egg-stravagently adorned Secrets egg jewel box. Both are egg-ceptional, and we promise no more egg-scruiating egg yolks, I mean, jokes.

SWAROVSKI LARGE USA RABBIT AND SPARROW

As mentioned in earlier posts, in the early days of Silver Crystal sometimes there were different items manufactured in USA to Europe and vice versa. For example, the mini rabbit and mini sparrow which were available globally, were joined in the US market by a larger version. The mini rabbit is 1” (25mm) tall and was introduced in 1979, retiring in 1988. While it may not sound particularly large (its all relative!), the USA exclusive large rabbit stands at 1 ½” (38mm) tall and was introduced in 1983, retiring in 1988.

SWAROVSKI SOULMATE PANTHERS

The Swarovski Soulmates Panther was produced in a range of colours, with the clear and moroda (bronze colour) crystal panthers available without restriction. The orange shine, lime green and tourmaline green (the darker of the 2 green panthers) were each available in a worldwide limited edition of 888 numbered pieces. Collectors have asked why 888? We believe this number was chosen as 8 is the lucky number in Chinese culture, and 888 is considered to be the luckiest combination of numbers.

SWAROVSKI PARADISE FROGS

Elisabeth Adamer designed the beautiful Paradise Frogs, the first of the animals released as part of the Paradise collection that weren’t insects, birds, butterflies or fish. Honouring the unique flora and fauna of the rainforest, this pair of Swarovski frogs sparkles in a combination of vibrant crystal colours. The frogs can be displayed separately or together.

SWAROVSKI SIAMESE FIGHTING FISH

The Swarovski crystal Siamese fighting fish belonged to the “South Sea” collection. All the fish have a clear crystal body and a frosted mouth. Designed by Heinz Tabertshofer, the fish was available with blue, green or red fins.

CRYSTALLINE VASE

The crystalline vase was designed by Simone Rossman. Sophisticated and modern in design, the Crystalline Vase sparkles with – wait for it - 7,600 crystal stones, and precious rhodium-plated metal. Elegant and festive, Swarovski’s Crystalline range exudes luxury and is always popular with collectors.

SWAROVSKI HALLOWEEN HOOT

Continuing with the Halloween theme, Swarovski’s cute character Hoot the Owl is ready to go trick-or-treating. Wearing a sorcerer's hat and clutching a pumpkin, this adorable 2019 Annual Edition piece sparkles with 354 crystal facets.
