Swarovski and Disney collectors may be glad to hear about the Swarovski Arribas Jeweled Mickey Mouse is on ebay with an attractive opening bid! (Specific item details are available on the Swarovski Jeweled Mickey Mouse in the auction.)
The Swarovski Mickey Mouse was a limited edition figurine sold and marketed by the Arribas Brothers stores in the Disney theme parks. 10,000 limited edition Swarovski statues were produced for the Arribas Brothers. This collectible figure is 2.25″ tall and has over 180 Swarovski paves stones set into the face, arms, chest, buttons and legs of Mickey Mouse. Mickey Mouse features the Arribas stamp in the foot of the figurine.
The Arribas Mickey Mouse originally retailed for $295 when it launched and sold out in 1997. While the figurine itself is not numbered, the accompanying certificate does indicate the production number. An optional stand and plaque were offered with the figurine at approximately $50 each.
The Swarovski Mickey Mouse was the first piece in the joint venture between Swarovski and the Arribas Brothers stores. Following the success of this figurine, other similarly-decorated, limited edition, figurines were produced: Tinker Bell, Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck, and there are others.
Arribas continues to introduce and sell figurines decorated with Swarovski crystal stones, however, they don’t seem to be quite as popular as the inaugural Mickey Mouse.
