Happy Mother’s Day to Swarovski collecting crystal fanatics around the world! May all Moms, Grandmothers, and Mothers-to-be have a delightful day!
I recently found this charming tale and thought today was the perfect day to remember the youthful innocence of kidsâ¦.
A mother and her young son returned from the grocery store and began putting away the groceries. The boy opened the box of animal crackers and spread them all over the table. “What are you doing?” his mother asked. “The box says you can’t eat them if the seal is broken,” the boy explained. “Therefore I’m looking for the seal”, he cutely said.
Speaking of seals, 2011 is the twentieth anniversary of the Swarovski AE Seals. The Swarovski Seals, were the Swarovski SCS Annual Edition crystal figurine for 1991, designed by Michael Stamey. In 1991, they retailed for $225. At present, the secondary market price is $375 to $500 for the Swarovski Seals in mint condition with original box and certificate.
In addition to the Save Me Seals, the crystal brand produced other Swarovski Seals:
- 5 different variations of the Swarovski Large Seal, Retired in 2005
- 3 different variations of the Swarovski Baby Seal, Retired 2005
- Swarovski Playing Seal, Retired 2007
