Horses in Art for the Home

Updated on November 7, 2015

Horses in Art

The horse is a fascination animal, and quite a few people find horse figurines and art collectible. Here are few animals that can compare in beauty, especially if a horse is running free. So, decorating with horse figurines, especially those that have an authentic look, and horse wall art is quite common.

The collectible come in an abundance of different pieces, but most are equally beautiful.

Breyer Collectible Horses

The Breyer figurines in resin or pewter, or the few in crystal, are truly pieces of art. These limited edition pieces are produced from molds, but finished by hand, a process requiring about twenty artisans. Their claim is no two horses ever are identical.

If buying collectibles, be careful. Breyer also makes toy horses intended for play. The words “limited edition” would indicate a collectible.

Displaying a Collection of Horse Figurines

A collection of horse figurines can easily be displayed on a mantle or decorative table. Other methods of displaying them include in a shadow box mounted on a wall. This method has the advantage that, if a glass front is included, dust will be less of a problem.

Proper Procedure for Keeping the Value

Like any collectible, authentication is important. Retaining the box and certificate of authenticity is crucial to value retention. If ever the piece needs to be sold, the inclusion of such “extras” should enhance the value.

Difficult to Find Pieces

Breyer produced limited edition pieces, and when that edition has reached that limit, it is retired. Finding retired pieces is harder than finding others. A list of retired pieces is kept on the Breyer website. Thunderstorm is the beauty that shows up, a stunning black horse. I can see why it would sell out.

Please comment on these collectibles and art pieces.

      It's a lovely selection of horse collectibles and art. When I was young, we had horse art in our home. When I see it now, I always think of my Daddy, and how he loved horses.
