Some little-known pictures produced by our favorite crystal brand are the Swarovski CrystalograM creations. Briefly, a CrystalograM is a work of art by Hubert Weidinger with Swarovski crystal stones hand-set into the work which extends from a canvas across the frame to create an extremely unique portrait.
Hubert Weidinger is a Swarski artist who created five CrystalograMs, hence âThe Five by Weidingerâ. The Swarovski CrystalograM pictures each have a theme and primary color:
- Swarovski Fire CrystalograM â red
- Swarovski Nature CrystalograM âÂ green
- Swarovski Earth CrystalograM â orange
- Swarovski Air CrystalograM â violet
- Swarovski Water CrystalograM â blue
The five Swarovski CrystalograM pictures were available in two different sizes, both which were Swarovski limited editions.Â The smaller size was 12â square and was limited to 4,999 units.Â Â The larger size was 24.5â square and was limited to 99 units.Â The 12â CrystalograM was decorated with about 400 crystal stones retailed for approximately $350.Â The 24.5â CrystalograM was decorated with about 1200 faceted crystal stones and retailed for $5000.
All the Swarovski CrystalograMs were officially available from 1993 through 1997, however some of them may have sold out prior to that due to the limited quantity available.
While a few other CrystalograM designs have been documented, they were likely commissioned for special clients.
Swarovski CrystalograM pictures are very difficult to find. At Crystal Exchange America, only a few have ever been listed and sold, and that was nearly a decade ago when the economy was much stronger. During that timeframe, the smaller ones sold in the price range of $650 – $900 each. The larger ones sold in the price range of $3000 – $3200. If were more to be listed in our online store at www.CrystalExchange.com , the Swarovski CrystalograMs would appear in the category âLimited Edition Swarovskiâ.
