A recent Swarovski press release follows about the crystal giant’s new Disney Collection, which is a faceted salute to Mickey’s debut in 1928.

Swarovski and Disney are synonymous with magic and enchantment. The collaborations are a successful blend of Disney’s icons and Swarovski’s unique crystal expertise.

2013  Swarovski Limited Edition Mickey Mouse created in the Swarovski Pointiage® technique

Swarovski 2013 Limited Edition Mickey Mouse

With an appreciative nod to history, Swarovski presents Disney’s Steamboat Willie. This piece celebrates the 85th anniversary of the first Disney movie with synchronized sound. Limited to the year of issue, the dynamic Steamboat Willie, Limited Edition 2013 is created in faceted clear and Black Diamond Crystal and, thanks to the separate bases, can be positioned in a number of different ways. It was in this heartwarming tale of adventure that Mickey and Minnie had their romantic debut. Who was to know, that for Disney too, it would all start with a mouse?  (Personal comment….I think it may have started with a mouse for Swarovski too!)

Mickey aficionados should mark March 2013 in their calendar. In celebration of the most recognizable and beloved symbol of the world, Swarovski is issuing a limited edition Mickey Mouse entirely created in the Swarovski trademark Pointiage® technique. Limited to 100 pieces worldwide, each Mickey Mouse, Limited Edition 2013 is individually numbered. Ever-enchanting, the Mickey Mouse Limited Edition is covered in approximately 21,000 hand-set crystals and is available as of March 4, 2013 from selected Swarovski Boutiques or the Swarovski online shop.
