The Woodpeckers were the second Annual Edition made for SCS members, and they belong to the “Caring and Sharing” trilogy. Because the Woodpeckers were being produced at the time when the Swarovski and SCS logos were changing from SC/SCS to the swan logo, the Woodpeckers can be found with either logo. The Woodpecker figurine depicts a parent Woodpecker and a baby on a tree trunk, and the piece came with an octagonal SCS mirror. Because of the hand assembling of this piece, here at The Crystal Lodge, we in a position to compare different Woodpeckers, and they vary quite considerably in head placement, and notably the beaks of the 2 birds can be placed quite close to each other, sometimes crossing or they are further apart. This version is the more common version which has a frosted trunk base (the underside of the piece). Some of the earlier examples have a clear base.

An optional blue velvet stand and a silver plastic plaque were made to go with this piece originally. Later, a clear “Caring and Sharing” plaque was issued by public demand!

PLEASE NOTE:
Unfortunately, the vast majority of 1988 Woodpeckers and 1986/7 Lovebirds have an issue with the foam inside the boxes which is starting to deteriorate and go powdery. The sets we have in stock are no exception. We think it is important to keep the original foam in place while still practicable as it keeps the piece authentic, and despite the deterioration, the original packaging still represents the most suitable and safest way to store the piece.
