Swarovski Cigarette Holders – For the Smoker ?


A very small quantity of items with the smoker in mind were produced by Swarovski (although will probably not be used by a collector) included the Ashtray, Cigarette Lighter & Cigarette Holder. We will be discussing each in separate blog posts over the next few weeks.

Let’s talk about the Cigarette Holders first.

The most common Cigarette Holder is 100% crystal with no metal accents.

The other far more unique & hard to find Cigarette Holders were produced from 1977 to 1983 with a variety of metal accents – Rhodium Polished, Brushed Rhodium, & Polished Gold.  These sold for Thousands of Dollars at one time to Collectors in the Secondary Market, after they were retired, before the After Market collapse.

Swarovski Beetle Bottle Openers


The Beetle Bottle Openers have been one of our most controversial subjects among our ‘Crystal Fanatics’, for their ultimate uniqueness and for their design attributes… some like it while others do not think they are very attractive. What do you think ??

Beetle Bottle Opener - Gold, Smooth

Beetle Bottle Opener – Gold, Smooth

7505 076 001 / 011 840
Beetle Bottle Opener – Gold, Smooth
Var. 1
SC block only (may be hidden from view)  stamped on the metal component
The metal body where the legs attach has a smooth finish, stones are not interchangeable.
Designer: Team
Size: 4 3/8 inches 110mm long
Issue Date: 1978 / Retired 1983
MRP: $80

7505 076 002 / 011 840
Beetle Bottle Opener – Rhodium, Smooth
Var. 1

7505 076 001 / 011 840
Beetle Bottle Opener – Gold – Rough surface
Var. 2  Logo: Block SC

Beetle Bottle Opener, Rhodium, rough

The metal body where the legs attach has a rough texture, crystal stones are not interchangeable.
These two issues have the same specifics as those above, the only difference is in the textured surface.  The difference is on the side of the metal; it is either smooth or rough in texture.

The Beetle Bottle Opener was also available in Genuine Silver. Possibly a prototype.

At one time, they were valued at several thousand dollars.

BOOKS ABOUT SWAROVSKI ? DID YOU KNOW ?


BOOKS ABOUT SWAROVSKI ?
DID YOU KNOW ?

I am often asked about the availability of books that are published containing information about Swarovski products.
And, there are books available. For example, Dean Genth’s ‘Collecting Swarovski’ and Vivienne Becker’s ‘The Magic of Crystal’ are among the most known books for Collectors.
Books, as you know, only have a capability for a certain # of pages with information & photographs before they become cumbersome, limiting their usefulness. Then, of course, there is a multitude of books available about Swarovski Jewelry & Beads.

However, there is ONE Source where you can view thousands and thousands of photographs filled with information about the multitude of Swarovski Crystal issued during the last several decades (yes, we have them all the way back to the early 70’s !)
The Crystal Fanatics Club (CFC) for Collectors of Swarovski Crystal is currently celebrating its 16th year on the net. Our CFC Photo Galleries currently contain more than 13,000 Photos; most of them depicting the many various product lines issued by Swarovski for Collectors. We even have a few 2016 New Issues posted on our Bulletin Board!
For a mere $29.95 yearly, you can have access to our FABULOUS CFC Photo Galleries, along with all the many benefits we offer our Members.
