SWAROVSKI STAMPS (4 MOUNTED) PLUS FIRST DAY COVER (SEALED) - AUSTRIA POST FOR KRISTALLWELTEN

£30.00
SKU: S2933

These stamps were an absolute novelty world-wide, the first time that crystals were applied to a commemorative stamp. The Austrian company Swarovski enjoys a world-wide reputation, not only for its famous crystals and crystal products, but also its small sparkling works of art for collectors. Such a work of art is also shown on this valuable stamp block, the product of a collaboration between the Austrian Post and Swarovski .

In 1995, Swarovski celebrated the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation, a highlight of the celebrations being the opening of the Swarovski Crystal Worlds at Wattens in Tyrol: a 2000 m² underground labyrinth of rooms bathed in the light and colours of millions of sparkling and glittering crystals that entice the visitor into a fantasy world designed by the artist André Heller. It was under his direction that the Crystal Worlds were also rebuilt in 2003, and inspirational wonder chambers are now an addition to the Crystal Worlds.

This SET of stamps includes:

a block of 2 mint condition stamps
a block of 2 specially franked stamps
and
a First Day Cover (FDC) featuring both stamps, with the Official Special Postmark of Wattens/Tyrol. The FDC is SEALED.
