'A Curious Puzzle' is a unique collectible figurine from the Krystonia collection,
which includes over 200 items. The figurines are based on characters from
the ‘Krystonia Chronicles’ book series. The books describe a
whimsical world of wizards and dragons, with lands and inhabitants that have
great extremes. Crystal is central to the Krystonia story
line, and all but two figurines in the collection have at least one SWAROVSKI smooth
or faceted crystal. A card, numbered and signed by the painter, is included
that tells a little about the character.
The figurines are made in cold cast porcelain and resin,
which allows for the great detail of each character, and portrays their unique
personalities. The first Krystonia figurines were
produced in 1987 in a small factory in Stoke-On-Trent, England. Later ones
were produced in England and in China. There were a few sculptors and artists
involved, but the majority were designed by David Woodard and Pat Chandok, who
were with the line since its inception. Many were limited editions, and none
were produced again once they were retired. Some were only available to members
of the ‘Krystonia Collectors Club’ that was started in 1990.nd charm. Some of the figurines were created from the stories while others were designed first, and then a story was developed for them. They are made of cold cast porcelain and resin, which showcases the artists skill and originality, and the great detail of each piece.
