RARE vintage Swarovski Crystal "Trimlite" basketball player figurine from their "Crystal Champions" group. Some of the oldest Swarovski figurines were produced in the Trimlite product line in the 1980's. These figurines were usually on the smaller side...under 4"...and included significant gold metal accents. If there was any Swarovski mark on them, it was the Trimlite "T" stamped into the metal. One of the most sought after and collectible groups was this "Crystal Champions" group of six different athletes. This is the basketball player with his faceted crystal basketball and his long slender body made from a single faceted crystal. He stands 4" tall, and his gold plated pieces have a rich patina. He is signed with the Trimlite "T" and the year 1984. It was retired in 1988. This figurine is in excellent vintage condition and displays beautifully. It is very hard to find. I do not have the original packaging, and these did not have certificates when they were issued. I'll be listing more of these figurines and I recently acquired a large collection of authentic vintage Swarovski jewelry...many pieces still on their original cards...so you may want to take advantage of this opportunity to acquire some outstanding pieces and browse my other vintage treasures here on Ruby Lane.
