Breyer brought back a big surprise for 2015 that have collectors excited to see some of their favorite models back after many years. Golden Oak Stables has opened its stable doors to a new kind of livestock and wildlife that hasn’t been seen by collectors in years!
Breyer has long been known for it’s model horses, but they also have a long history of making animals and wildlife models that are favorites among collectors and animal lovers alike. Some of the first Breyer models were animals, and date all the way back to the beginning of the company in the early 1950’s. The Boxer, Elephant, and Collie models were all released very early on in Breyer’s history, and since then many more animal models have been produced. Collectors of all kinds have fallen in love with the wildlife and animal models over the years and many collections have at least one animal model in it, if not more!
The Deer Family is a long time favorite for collectors since being released first in 1974. This set of three deer stand calmly and silently, all looking off to the distance. They have been painted in a light tan color with delicate shading throughout. The fawn even has the delicate white dotting of a baby deer coat still on her.
It’s easy to see why they would be collector favorites, not only are they beautiful, but the deer family makes a great prop for traditional scale setups and dioramas. What trail rider hasn’t come across a deer in the woods?
Do you have any animal models in your collection? If not, the Deer Family is a perfect place to start!
