The Swarovski book is divided into 16 sections for the various categories, and each piece assigned to a category. This makes finding pieces in the book simple. Categories include: SCS Members, Disney, Animals, Paperweights, Candleholders, Fruit and Botanical, Silver Crystal City, Musical, Clocks, Box and Containers, Picture Frames, small Chinese Zodiacs, Characters (formerlyLovlots), Other Silver Crystal Items, Dealer Plaques, and member Christmas Ornaments.
In the Description section, you will read some very interesting facts on the crystal items. For example, did you know there are (at least) 5 variations of the Medium Mouse? Only the descriptions and Swarovski photos in this Swarovski book allow the collector to accurately distinguish the differences among the variations of the Medium Mouse. These variations can have a big impact on the Swarovski ERV, the lowest variation having an ERV of $100 and the highest one having an ERV of $3000!
This is an ideal Swarovski price guide for keeping accurate inventory of your Swarovski collection and acceptable for most insurance requirements.
