The very first Swarovski SCS crystal figurine was the Swarovski ‘Togetherness’ Lovebirds. These Swarovski Lovebirds were an incredible crystal figurine. Swarovski offered more than just the figurine, they also offered an optional title plaque to display with the 1987 SCS annual edition.
The Swarovski Lovebirds plaque, by today’s standards, was fairly inexpensive, and perhaps a bit sub-standard looking, after all, the plaque is plastic. The Lovebirds plaque is rectangular in shape, with rounded corners. It measures about 1.5” high and 3” long.
The SCS Lovebirds plaque is navy on the back side with a fold-out hinge allowing it to freely stand. The front side resembles brushed silver. There is a navy border, and all the text and design on the Lovebirds plaque appears engraved in navy. In addition to the SCS logo at the top, the text reads:
Annual Edition 1987
“Togetherness” – the Lovebirds
The Lovebirds Plaque can be found using reference # SCMRP87, which was originally used in the Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski Price Guide.
A special thanks to Jane Warner, co-author to Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski for consulting on the Swarovski Lovebirds Plaque article.
Regarding availability and replacement value, the SCS Swarovski Lovebirds Plaque is not easy to find. Remember, the Lovebirds were only offerered in English-speaking countries. So, of those SCS members that purchased the figurine, what percentage may have actually purchased any accessories to go with it? I did find a completed sale (in 2012) in the online auctions for $120! Crystal Exchange America, presently has a single listing for Swarovski Lovebirds Plaque that is over $300 with their commission! Keep in mind that their selling clients establish pricing, so not all items may be priced appropriately for a quick sale.
