    I also like the penguins, but saying that… no more please! I prefer unique pieces and we are starting to see too many duplicates made.Keep up the good work in grouping the pieces together in the articles, it makes you realize just how much is out there. Mind you, the number of photos in the CFC galleries is a good indication as to how many pieces Swarovski actually has produced over the years!

    Same here, Swarovski penguin lines are some of the better animal models that have been produced over the years.
