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’s Twilight (mold #470) was sculpted by Jeanne Mellin Herrick as a portrait of one of Misty’s descendants, made famous in Marguerite Henry’s novel of the same name. This test run model has been painted as a bright flaxen chestnut with a star and one hind sock. Her color just glows! Based on the painting style and techniques used to create this model, she likely dates from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
As a true test model, the Chestnut Misty’s Twilight has a few small flaws – she has two faint black lines in her paint (one on the left shoulder, and another on the left barrel) and a handful of shiny marks from being handled over the years. She is still an excellent piece of Breyer history to be cherished! See gallery for details – click on each photo to view a larger image in order to examine flaws.
This piece is priced at $850 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
