The final crystal figurine in the Swarovski ‘Caring and Sharing’ trilogy was the Swarovski ‘Amour’ Turtledoves. These Turtledoves were a lovely crystal figurine, for the SCS member to add to the Swarovski colletcion. In addition to the figurine, Swarovski provided collectors the opportunity to buy an optional display stand made specifically for the 1989 SCS annual edition.
The Swarovski Turtledoves Stand is primarily thin plastic with a cardboard base underneath. The SCS Turtledoves Stand is blue with soft flocking on the top. The underside is black cardboard. The indentations on the top are an exact complement to the frosted Turtledoves branch.
The Stand for the Swarovski Turtledoves Amour can be found using reference # DO1X891S, which is used by Crystal Exchange America. The Swarovski Turtledoves Stand is not shown in the Warner’s Blue Ribbon Books on Swarovski Price Guide.
Using information shared from our clients as well as transactions completed, it seems that the Swarovski Turtledoves Stand and Swarovski Turtledoves Plaque were sometimes sold as a pair. Crystal Exchange America has seen just a couple of them that come together, in a little Swarovski box that matches the silver / blue design of the SCS Swarovski Caring and Sharing boxes used for the Lovebirds and Woodpeckers (Remember, the Turtledoves box is a white cylinder).
The SCS Swarovski Turtledoves Stand is not effortless to find in good condition. It is not uncommon to see the outer edges fraying / cracking, so this is something to be aware of when purchasing. Crystal Exchange America has a single listing for the Turtledoves Stand at $135. However, it would appear that this price may be more than most crystal collectors are willing to pay for such a fragile stand that does not really add anything to the overall appeal of displaying the Swarovski Turtledoves.
