Within the Swarovski Crystal product lines, the falcon figurine is an infrequent design.  Off the top of my head, I can think of only two Swarovski Falcon figurines and the Crystal Myriad Alsaqr Almalaki.

Swarovski Falcon

Swarovski Falcon: Crystal Myriad Alsaqr Almalaki

The Swarovski Alsaqr Almalaki is a Crystal Myriad created by Elisabeth Adamer.  Like all Crystal Myriads, the Alsaqr Almalaki is a very elaborate, expensive figurine, complete with a special Swarovski certificate.   The Alsaqr Almalaki Falcon is a Numbered Limited Edition over 20 inches in height and containing over 43,000 hand-set crystals.  Due to the fragile nature and overall production time to decorate and attach the stones, this Swarovski falcon is crafted as needed when orders are placed for it.  This Crystal Myriad Falcon was introduced in 2010, and is still available for purchase in the Swarovski store, despite the overall maximum production of 300 numbered units.  Having a price tag of $15,500 likely increases the time it would take for this statue to be a ‘sell-out’.

The Kristall Buzz featured an article earlier this year about the Swarovski Crystal Myriad statues.  In this article, a link to a YouTube video is included which shows a total of four Crystal Myriad figurines, including the Alsaqr Almalaki.

The other Swarovski Falcon designs are the Swarovski Falcon Head.  The Falcon Head was available in two different sizes:  a small version about 1 ¾” in height and a large version about 4″ in height.

The Swarovski Small Falcon Head is known using the Swarovski reference #’s : 7645 045 000 / 013 829.  It was available from 1986 to 1991 and has been seen with either Swarovski logo, the Block SC logo or Swan logo.  The retail price at the time of availability was $85.  It has also been documented to have some different faceting at the base of the neck area.

The Swarovski Large Falcon Head is known using the Swarovski reference #’s : 7645 100 000 / 010 064.  It was available from 1984 to 1991 and has been seen with either Swarovski logo, the Block SC logo or Swan logo.  The retail price at the time of availability was $825. It has also been documented to have some different form/shape in the neck area.

Swarovski Optike Falcons

Swarovski Optik Falcons

Years later, in 1999, the crystal brand produced some special sets of the Swarovski Falcon Heads.  These special sets were produced for their own Optik division to celebrate 50 years of manufacturing.  These Falcon Heads were packaged in white/forest green boxes.  The larger falcon head was marked with the Optik logo (see left side of Falcon photo collage) and the small falcon head had the traditional Swan logo.  The Swarovski Optik Falcon Head set is very difficult to find, but there is a set presently available at Crystal Exchange America now!  Simply go to www.CrystalExchange.com  and use the search feature with the keyword “falcon” to locate it in the store of this reputable Swarovski dealer.
