For the past several years, luxury launches site VeryFirstTo has offered jaw-dropping Christmas gift and decoration options, like the $4.2 Million Christmas Wreath and $1.25 Million Diamond Christmas Crackers. If you have $122,800 to spare, you can give someone – the World’s Most Dazzling Rocking Zebra adorned with over 82,000 Swarovski crystals.
A couple of months back I covered the story of Swarovski Crystal adorned Rocking Horse crafted by Stevenson Brothers. The same company is now responsible for creating this dazzling zebra. The UK-based company has made a name for itself as the foremost rocking horse maker in the world – in all shapes and sizes. Their famous clients include Paul McCartney, Joanna Lumley, Madonna, and Prince George.
The 4-foot tall hand-painted Dazzling Rocking Zebra is hand-carved from oak and tulipwood – all according to specifications from Fernandes Exquisite Creations. Swarovski crystals are then meticulously hand-applied by husband and wife/ballroom dancer couple Fernandez team of Nuno and Rebecca. The couple used a five-color 40millimeter Swarovski crystal combination ranging from silver to jet-black.
Because of their Latin American championship dance background, the Nuno and Rebecca know a lot more about all things that dazzle and hard labor involved with it. Nuno Fernandes says: “I am used to making and crystallizing costumes for ourselves, although I must admit that hand-applying over 82,000 crystals to the Zebra is more back-breaking than the samba, cha-cha, tango, and rumba combined.”
The Dazzling Rocking Zebra is exclusively available from VeryFirstTo priced at £98,400/ €116,000/ $122,800. For more information email Gabrielle Varlow at – press@VeryFirstTo.com or call on 020 7871 0487.
