Breyer Horse Holiday: 2016 Artist Ornament

November 17, 2016

One of the more recent additions to the Breyer Holiday collection, has quickly become one that is eagerly anticipated by collectors, the Artist Ornament. This beautiful ornament showcases the impressive gamut of artisans that help Breyer create the most incredible horses in the world.

For 2016, Breyer has chosen the artist Sheryl Leisure to celebrate with her astonishing artwork decorating each side of this beautiful ornament. Sheryl has designed many horses over the years for Breyer, and is well known among hobbyists and has been for decades! As a staple of the model horse community, Sheryl’s contributions to the hobby go beyond her artwork and is also known for creating the West Coast Model Horse Jamboree, which essentially was Breyerfest for those west of the Mississippi for years!

Now, Sheryl has been immortalized on a beautiful glass globe ornament, The 2016 Artist Ornament, each side featuring her incredible art work. Each side features a stunning representation of a well known pony from the Breyer stable. On one side, a sorrel Welsh pony and on the other a grey hunter pony, each showing the incredible talent of one of Breyer’s most beloved artists!

Trim your tree with something truly beautiful this year, and of course,  Golden Oak Stables is ready to help!
