Breyer Collectable Porcelain Horses
Kathleen Moody’s Colorful And Hand Decorated Horse in Costume Series
Not only do I love having horses in my barn, but I like them inside my house too. Not the eating and pooping kind, but a pretty-to-look-at kind. I love to surround myself with those things that I love.
Kathleen Moody is a phenomenal artist who has created animal sculptures for DaBar Enterprises, Safari and Hartland, in addition to her better known Breyer horses. The majority of her horses are resin and handpainted. From 1995 to 1999 she released the Premier Series of Horses in Authentic Costume.
These beautiful horses are not resin but very breakable fine porcelain. The colors and detail are stunning. I showcase mine in a display case, which also helps to minimize dust and keep them glowing.
There are six figurines, each released originally with a limited edition of 2500 pieces. Each individual piece is numbered. When collecting I like to acquire pieces with the original Certificate Of Authenticity and original box and packaging. The horses are in the traditional breyer horse size which is measures about 6-8 inches tall and 8-10 inches long. The six horses are:
1995 Arabian Mare in traditional Arabian Costume
Light Gray With Gray Shaded Body, Tail, Mane And Legs. Prancing with an expressive eye.
1996 All American Saddlebred in Parade Costume
Dark palomino with cream shaded mane and tail, stockings, blaze, silver hooves, silver and black costume with red roses and red and blue ribbons. The tapaderos are separate pieces.
