Last year, Swarovski introduced some figurines in the Happy Ducks group that could have some royal lineage.  Since that time, they have added more royal Happy Ducks to the family, so I wanted to do a brief posting on all of these Swarovski Happy Ducks.

Swarovski Prince Happy Duck

In 2011, the crystal giant launched the Swarovski Happy Prince Duck and Swarovski Happy Princess Duck.  The Swarovski designer for these two duck figurines was Keiko Arai.  Both Happy Ducks are still available from Swarovski.com at a retail price of $75.


Swarovski Royal Wedding Happy Ducks

Swarovski Limited Edition Royal Wedding Ducks

Then, around March, 2011, with the celebration of the royal wedding on April 29, Swarovski produced some limited edition ducks, Royal Wedding Happy Ducks.  This pair of Happy Ducks was essentially the Happy Prince Duck and Happy Princess Duck, packaged as a pair with some special etchings, and offered as a Limited Edition in the UK.   (Check out the out the article on the Kristall Buzz for the Swarovski Royal Wedding Happy Ducks for more information on them).

The Swarovski Royal Wedding Ducks can be found at an attractive price on ebay for about 2 more weeks.  The ebay item # is 140735067314.

Swarovski Sir and Lady Happy Ducks

At the beginning of the year, they crystal brand realigned some figurines into different product lines.  So effective Jan, 2012, the Swarovski Happy Ducks are now Lovlots Happy Ducks.  The CrystalExchange.com has a complete list of Lovlots Happy Ducks on their web site.

Now, in 2012, Swarovski has created yet another pair of royal Happy Ducks.  But it is not the King Happy Duck, nor Queen Happy Duck.  This new couple of Happy Ducks is the Swarovski Sir and Lady Happy Ducks.  The Swarovski designer for Sir and Lady Duck is Verena Castelein.  These royal ducks are available at Swarovski.com at a retail price of $150.

Perhaps all these Swarovski Crystal Happy Ducks should get together for a tea party!
