Hackney ~ Aristocrat (Sale for charity)
The Hackney breed is known as "The aristocrat of the show ring," with their high head carriage and high-stepping action. Bred to pull carriages for human aristocracy, their tails were often bobbed or cut short to keep them from getting tangled in their harnesses. Breyer's tribute to the Hackney, sculpted by Kitty Cantrell, was originally released as the aptly named "Aristocrat Champion Hackney." He was only produced in this original color from 1995-1996.
This fellow is Near Mint, with no rubs or marks seen! He just needs to be given some sunbathing time to brighten those yellowed socks and he'll be like new! He does have a slight odor of smoke that may collect while he's wrapped here, but should dissipate when you sunbathe him. He even comes with his original box!
If you don't want his box, add a note when you order him, and we'll recycle it here.
This model was donated to our charity account for Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, and proceeds from its sale will help the shelter care for dogs and kitties in need. Thanks for your support!

We maintain an Honest Shipping Policy: We always try to save you money on shipping and only charge what is needed to get your box to you. We often cut boxes down to fit your order, which can save you money... If we find we can ship for less than our website charges you for shipping, we will automatically refund the difference when we print your shipping label. You will never overpay when ordering from us!
Due to COVID, we are currently packing and shipping USPS on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. UPS requires a day's lead time to pick up, so UPS orders ship on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (They don't pick up on Saturday, so UPS orders placed after cutoff on Wednesday will ship the following Monday.)
