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.
Adios (mold #50) is one of Breyer’s longest-running fan favorite sculptures! First introduced in 1969, his kind expression has been delighting horse lovers for over half a century. This particular piece likely dates to the late 2000s and is painted as a striking metallic brown bay with a blaze and four socks. He has been painted on whiteware marked with a “U.S.A.” stamp.
As a true test run model, this piece does have some small flaws from use and handling. These include a tiny pinpoint mark on the right-side hip, a small shiny mark on the left side hip, and one small black mark each on the muzzle and inside left front sock. There is also a dash of silver paint under one hoof, but this is not visible when the model is standing. See gallery for details.
This piece of Breyer history is priced at $1,200 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
