The Swarovski Golden Shadow Lion was released to Swarovski retailers near October 20, 2010.  I was excited when mine arrived about a week later.  I wanted to share some photos of this newest Swarovski Soulmate release with my collecting friends.

The Swarovski system # is 1092104.  The suggested retail price is $960.  This magnificent Golden Shadow Lion came with a special black card, cleaning cloth, gloves, and generic blue certificate (like other Swarovski generic certificates). The designer is Mario Dilitz. The Swarovski swan logo is on the back right foot. The stunning Swarovski figurine has dimensions of 6 15/16 x 3 7/8 x 6 7/16 inches and stands on a base of mahogany granite.

I have seen various places on the internet that there is a restaurant opening INSIDE a Swarovski boutique!  Sound peculiar?  I can’t say I would of ever considered the idea myself. The owner is well-known chef  Kurt Guttenbrunner.

The location is Soho (New York), and the official opening day is November 15.  Best of luck to the chef and Swarovski boutiuqe in this venture!

I’d love to visit Swarovski in Vienna and Wattens.  I came accross a news article where a Swarovski Kristallwelten boss voices her dissatisfaction about the local traditions in Vienna and and how they affect the Swarovski Crystal Shop there.  Apparently, the strong Roman Catholic influence in Austria, more or less, prevents companies from doing business on Sunday.
