Swarovski Selection


"Swarovski Petit Vase"

Petit Vase

 

 

In 1992, the Launch of the 12-piece Swarovski “Selection” collection by well-known contemporary designers began. Selection was  considered the second top of the line product in the hierarchy of product lines, often produced in numbered, limited quantities at prices that could be afforded. Swarovski has since integrated what was the Selection line into the Home/Interior category.

Each piece is marked with the Swan and Swarovski Selection logo. Among some of the initial issues:

    I agree Nan. The original Selection pieces are stunning compared to the current Crystal Decor, or Home Accessories, or whatever category they now fit into!

    Yes I like these items, it is a pity that the modern designs are nowhere near as good as these ones from years ago.

    A very interesting article.
    Some of these item I like, and some I am not so keen on.
    I have got Schmuckdose Box.
    Yes I have got it. But I cannot say it!
