Occasionally, we get some unusual requests from clients, who are simply ‘consumers’, but not Swarovski collectors.   Such requests that we have received in the past 3 months are for clients looking for the Swarovski Large Flower Mo and the Swarovski Blue Flower Mo.  Of course, being a Swarovski collector, I know that there is only ONE Swarovski Flower Mo.  But clients have a general idea of figurines they want to purchase, without the correct figurine name and have no idea of identification #’s to know for certain the item they want to purchase.  Furthermore, clients don’t necessarily perceive us as Swarovski experts, but only as an online store and could care less if the name is right or wrong as long as they get the figurine they have pictured in their mind.  (Would be great if we had a mind-reading store!)

Clients requesting the Lovlots Large Flower Mo or Lovlots Blue Flower Mo, generally indicate that they are certain of the Mo Cows existence as they have a friend that owns one, or that they have seen it elsewhere on the internet, like ebay (where sellers never? make mistakes).   Check out this Large Blue Flower Mo auction that ended March 2012.

Official Swarovski Flower Mo Cow

Swarovski Flower Mo, Small Green Mo Cow, Limited Edition

Sometimes called the Swarovski Large Flower Mo or Swarovski Blue Flower Mo

Swarovski Belle Mo, Large Blue Mo Cow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What clients are referring to as the Large Flower Mo or Blue Flower Mo is actually Swarovski Belle Mo!  But naturally, when you explain that you believe they are looking for Belle Mo, they will correct you saying it is the Large Flower Mo or Blue Flower Mo  (and at that, it is time to give up and simply help them to decide if they wish to proceed with the purchase).

To set the record straight….there is only ONE Swarovski Flower Mo, and it is a small light green cow with multi-colored flowers on it.  Flower Mo is about 1.75” long and was a limited edition Swarovski cow available only in 2009.  The larger cow mo with flowers is Swarovski Belle Mo.  This cow is light blue in color, with blue flowers on it.  Belle Mo is about 3.5” high and was available 2010 through 2012.  The design of both of these Mo Cows is credited to Edith Mair.

Swarovski Flower Mo one of the more expensive Mos to purchase, with an average selling range now at $290 – $350!

Should the crystal brand ever release another Lovlots Mo Cow decorated with flowers, an update to this article will likely be required to prevent further Swarovski Flower Mo confusion.

Swarovski Flower Mo (Limited Edition) and Swarovski Belle Mo can be found at Crystal Exchange America in the Lovlots and Zodiac store category.

May 29, 2012, our favorite crystal brand officially released the Swarovski Bubble Mo for purchase in their online shoppe.

The Swarovski Mo herd is excited to welcome the new blue cow to the Lovlots family.  The Mo Herd presently consists of….

Swarovski Bubble Mo, New Blue Cow

Swarovski Bubble Mo, Lovlots Blue Cow, Limited Edition 2012

  • Swarovski Alabaster Mo (2007 Exclusive Edition)
  • Swarovski Belle Mo (2010 – 2012)
  • Swarovski Bubble Mo, Limited Edition 2012
  • Swarovski Charming Mo, Limited Edition 2011
  • Swarovski Country Mos, Limited Edition 2010
  • Swarovski Flower Mo, Limited Edition 2009
  • Swarovski Glamour Mos, Limited Edition 2010
  • Swarovski Halloween Mo, Limited Edition 2009
  • Swarovski Lucky Mo, Limited Edition 2012
  • Swarovski Missy Mo (2006 – 2012)
  • Swarovski Missy Mo, Large (2006 – 2009)
  • Swarovski Pinky Mo, Limited Edition 2007
  • Swarovski Santa Mo, Limited Edition 2011
  • Swarovski Soccer Mo, Limited Edition 2008
  • Swarovski Sunshine Mo, Limited Edition 2011

On the crystal brand’s web site, they state that Limited Edition Swarovski Bubble Mo will be limited to 10 per person.  This guideline is in place to ensure that many collectors can purchase them directly from Swarovski at original retail price of $65.  If there were no maximum quantity in place (as has long been the practice on the Swarovski Mo figurines), they can be quickly found in the online auctions at higher prices, which does not make dedicated collectors very happy.

Swarovski Bubble Mo blue cow is about 1 ¾” height.  The company uses these colors in their official product description: Scuba Blue, Air Blue Opal, and Lavender crystal.  Swarovski mentions that the laser engraved bubbles are symbolic of “bubbles of excitement” in the product description.

Collectors wanting any of the retired or discontinued cow Swarovski Mo figurines can likely find them at Crystal Exchange America in the ‘Lovlots and Zodiac’ category of the store.

I’m placing my order today for the Limited Edition Lovlots Bubble Mo.  I hope she is as cute in person as she looks online!

I’m starting to see the 2012 Swarovski releases on the web.  There are a number pictures appearing at authorized retailer websites in North America and in Europe, so the release must be just around the corner.

Swarovski Lovlots Lucky Mo

The Swarovski Lucky Mo (green cow) looks like a fun crystal figurine.  Lovlots Lucky Mo is a light green ‘Mo figurine’ decorated with 2-color 4 leaf clovers, green hearts, and a tiny red ladybug on the hind end!  Descriptions indicate that this is a Swarovski Lovlots limited edition available in 2012, much like Swarovski Sunshine Mo or Swarovski Santa Mo are/were available in 2011.  The height of Lucky Mo is 1.75” and retail price is $65.  The Swarovski identification # for Lucky Mo is 1096750.  I’m wondering if it is the same light green shade as Swarovski Flower Mo, or if there is a different variation of green.  Swarovski Flower Mo is decorated with flowers vs the lucky clovers on the newest cow mo.

The crystal giant has produced a number of other (mostly limited edition) Swarovski Mo figurines, dating back to 2006.

One of the Swarovski stores taking pre-orders is “Crystal Classics” in Columbus, Ohio, but there are a number of them on the internet.  The Swarovski Lucky Mo green cow appears to be a real cutie.  It would make a great gift for St Patricks Day or even a cute 4-H award.  So you go girl….Lucky Mo, go join your Swarovski crystal sisters in the Lovlots pastures!

The Swarovski Sunshine Mo is now available for purchase at the Swarovski web site. This Limited Edition Lovlots Cow retails for $65.  Sunshine Mo is another one of those Swarovski Limited Editions that ‘is available ‘while supplies last’….no total production quantity mentioned and only a cutoff order date of 2011.

Swarovski Lovlots Sunshine Mo

Swarovski Sunshine Mo

The Sunshine Mo crystal cow looks delightful.  According to Swarovski’s description, she is vibrant jonquil  figurine with peridot crystal horns and light smoked topaz crystal ears wearing beautiful necklace in a stunning gradation of tropical crystal colors.

The Swarovski Mo family is expanding and starting to become a small Swarovski LE herd. I can just imagine all the Swarovski Mo figurine family planning a little party inside my crystal cabinet…some nice party music, frozen daiquiris, all having a good time.  Pinky Mo (Swarovski LE 2007), Alabaster Mo (Swarovski LE 2007), Soccer Mo (Swarovski LE 2008), Flower Mo (Swarovski LE 2009), Halloween Mo (Swarovski LE 2009), Country Mos (Swarovski LE 2010, Glamour Mos (Swarovski LE 2010), and Charming Mo (Swarovski LE 2011) will all be in attendance.

Crystal Exchange America has listings for many of the Swarovski Mo Cows and Swarovski Lovlots special editions.  Just visit http://www.crystalexchange.com/ and navigate to the Limited Edition Swarovski category in the menu on the left side of the web site.

Swarovski designed and sold its first cow in the Swarovski Lovlots series, Missy Mo, in 2006.  Missy Mo is clear in color and is still a member of the current product offerings.  After 2006, Swarovski began issuing this same design, changing the color, and offering the colored cows as limited edition figurines.

2009 Limited Edition Cow – Swarovski Flower Mo

In 2007, Swarovski made the first Limited Edition Mo, the Swarovski Pinky Mo.  Pinky Mo is, just as its name suggests, pink in color, with white horns and bell.

In 2008 Swarovski produced its next Limited Edition, Swarovski Soccer Mo.  Soccer Mo was red in color, with white horns and bell.

In 2009, Swarovski collectors were blessed with two Limited Edition Mos….Flower Mo and Halloween Mo.  Swarovski Flower Mo was light green in color, decorated with small rose, yellow, and white flowers, with white horns and bell.  Swarovski Halloween Mo was orange, with black horns and bell.

In 2010, Swarovski produced the Limited Edition cows as ‘couples': Swarovski Country Mos and Swarovski Glamour Mos.  The Country Mos were clear with brown or black spots and horns matching the spots.  The bells were a golden color.  The Swarovski Glamour Mos were the first cows to NOT have bells.  Instead, the female cow (golden in color) had a pearl necklace and the male cow (black in color) sported a small bow tie.

The individual Swarovski Lovlots cows generally sold for $55 – $75 from the Swarovski web site while the cow pairs retailed for $105 – $120.  However, the best performing Limited Edition cow is certainly the Swarovski Flower Mo.  Flower Mo is unquestionably cute….perhaps that is why it presently sells for the highest prices in the online auctions and at the retired Swarovski dealers.  The present selling prices are incredible for this Swarovski green cow… in the range of $275 – $325, which is up (on average) $75 from prices in December, 2010.  The upward spiral in price is unbelievable…is this some indication it may reach $400 by the end of the year?  With more Limited Edition Mo figurines on the horizon for 2011, it will be interesting to see if the Flower Mo prices will continue to rise, or if a 2011 release takes command once it is sold out.

Crystal Exchange America has all the Swarovski Limited Edition Cows and other special edition Swarovski Lovlots crystal figurines on their web site. If the dramatic rise in price is a trend (not just temporary), purchasing sooner rather than later, may be a good idea.
