The Kristall Buzz, a Blog on Swarovski Crystal, has launched a short video on YouTube with some unusual characters cast. The characters are retired and discontinued Swarovski crystal figurines! Have a watch!
The sole chick in the video is the Swarovski Mini Chicken. Introduced in 1979 and retired in 1988, the mini chicken is THE very origin of the collection which eventually lead to the popular Swarovski book publications: Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski.
The next four loveable characters are Swarovski Happy Ducks, all of which are limited edition figurines.The Swarovski Pink Duck (with the ribbon) was a limited edition duck produced for Breast Cancer Awareness. It was only available to certain countries when it was produced in 2010. This limited edition pink duck is stamped “2010” with the Swarovski swan logo on the underside of the figurine. A portion of the proceeds were to benefit Breast Cancer Research.
The Swarovski Pink Duck (without the ribbon) was a limited edition duck produced for the Kids Earth fund. When it was available in 2010, it could only be found in Japan. This limited edition pink duck is stamped “2010” with the Swarovski swan logo on the underside of the figurine.
While the final 2 performers may look like Swarovski Happy Prince and Swarovski Happy Princess, they are not. These limited edition ducks are the Swarovski Royal Wedding Happy Ducks. This pair of ducks is packaged in a single blue navy box. Each duck has the Swarovski Swan logo underneath. However, on the ducks’ back, there are additional markings to signify a special event. The commemorative event was the Royal Wedding of Prince William to Kate Middleton. On the back of the Prince Royal Wedding Duck is the royal wedding date: 29 April, 2011. On the back of the Princess Royal Wedding Duck is a pair of wedding rings. Watch in the video, and you will see these special markings highlighted. These Happy Ducks were limited to a production of 3000 pairs and were only available at select Swarovski crystal retailers in the UK.
All these Swarovski Limited Editions can be found on the Crystal Exchange America web site in the “Limited Edition Swarovski” category!
