Exclusively for Breyer Collector Club members! Breyer test run models are initial decos painted up to see how a particular color might look on a particular sculpture. Or they may be created to test out a painting technique or new colorway. Not all test run models are used, and they may vary over time as different painting techniques are developed and tested. Each model has a fixed price and interested members enter a random draw for the ability to purchase the test piece.
Misty (mold #20) is one of the most iconic Breyer sculptures of all time and has been in continuous production since she first debuted over 50 years ago. For most of that time, she’s worn Misty of Chincoteague’s palomino pinto coat, and it’s not too often that she’s produced in different colors. This test run model was painted as a lovely, shaded bay tobiano pinto with two white patches across her back, three socks, and a snip. This model likely dates to the late 2000s/early 2010s and was likely developed alongside our bay pinto Phantom Wings model that was released as part of the #61049 Art Class Set from 2011-2012.
Being a true test run model, this piece does have a few small flaws. These include a few small marks on her snip and a few pinpoint black marks on her back right hoof. See gallery for details.
This piece of Breyer history is priced at $1000 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
