The Phaeton is a lightweight, open carriage that was popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It was also the preferred method of transport for the late Queen Elizabeth II for her birthday processionals for more than three decades of her reign. This type of carriage featured a smaller body seated on four very large wheels and was typically drawn by just one or two horses.
For this year’s celebration of BreyerFest: Driving Forward, we’ve created Phaeton, a stunning crystal version of Kathleen Moody’s American Saddlebred porcelain model Calliope, who will be a part of this year's Limited Edition model lineup. Though the original porcelain release was about the size of a Traditional model, this scaled-down version is about 5” tall and a perfect fit for your curio cabinet.
This stunning creation has been delicately hand-crafted and will be available to all BreyerFest ticket holders, whether you’re joining us in-person or online. We hope you love Phaeton as much as we do!
We will see you right back here on the BreyerFest Blog tomorrow as we get closer to the end of this year’s amazing model reveals!
