Glossy Grey Belgian Test Piece

In November of 2020 Breyer offered this one of a kind Belgian for sale for $1,000 via raffle to members of its Collectors Club. Members could enter once per day via Breyer's website. This is the twenty third test model to be sold by Breyer in this manner, and the other models in this series can be found on the Test Piece Raffles page. Like all of the test pieces in this series its model number is 430040 and it comes with a certificate of authenticity.

"Everyone loves the Belgian! Sculpted by Chris Hess, this stout stallion was one of the very first draft horses in the Breyer lineup. This Belgian test model is painted as a shaded light grey, with subtle golden highlights in his mane and tail and a sweet little snip on his nose. Based on the painting techniques used to create this model, he likely dates from either the late 1990s or early 2000s.

As a HQ-used test model, the Glossy Grey Belgian does have some small flaws from being handled over the years. He has a few small black marks on his body, mostly concentrated on his off-side barrel/hip. There is also one small spot of missing paint on his back right hoof.

This piece is priced at $1000 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
