3" Commemorative Krystonia Pin-Back Button.
Part of the Krystonia figurine 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.
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.
