The Swarovski Turtledoves ‘Amour’ was the third and final Swarovski SCS crystal figurine in the ‘Caring and Sharing’ trilogy. The Swarovski Turtledoves were another spectacular piece of art. A title plaque for the 1989 SCS annual edition was available to SCS members for the AE Turtledoves, but was a separate purchase.
The Swarovski Turtledoves Plaque is an oblong square, with curved corners. It measures about 1.5″ high and 3″ long. It is identical in design to the Swarovski Lovebirds Plaque and Swarovski Woodpeckers Plaque. Like the other Caring and Sharing individual title plaques, the SCS Turtledoves plaque is cobalt on the back with self-standing moveable hinge. The front is grayish and has a simulated brushed finish. The frame is dark blue just like the imprinted design and text on the Turtledoves plaque. The text below the SCS logo reads:
Annual Edition 1989
‘Amour’ – the Turtledoves
The Turtledoves Plaque is identified using reference # SCMRP89, which was originally used in the Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovskii Catalog of recommended insurance values.
We wish to extend a thank you to Jane Warner, co-author to Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski for consulting on the Swarovski Turtledoves Plaque article.
The SCS Swarovski Turtledoves Plaque can be hard to locate to determine approximate replacement cost.
