The Swarovski Seals is the second crystal figurine of the second Swarovski trilogy is the “Mother and Child”. All SCS crystal figurines in this series were constructed of completely clear crystal components, which is a unique characteristic of all the Swarovski SCS figurines.
The Swarovski Seals could be purchased only in 1991 by SCS collectors with membership in the Swarovski Club (SCS). The Swarovski Seals measures about 4” long. It is a figurine with 2 clear seals, a mother seal and a baby seal, resting upon a clear iceberg.
The SCS Seals contain what the crystal brand calls the ‘backstamp / bottomstamp’, which is included for the sake of authenticity. It is simple to see the designer’s initials “MSt” and the year “91” on the underside of the iceberg. “MSt” is used for Michael Stamey’s initials since MS is used for Max Schrek (Lovebirds)
The ‘Save Me’ Seals can be identified using the Swarovski part number DO1X911 or system number 158 872.
