Phar Lap ~ Wild American Horse, Grulla (sale for charity)
Breyer has been known to play pretty loosely with the term grulla, but this fellow does represent the color rather well. He wears not only a shaded grey coat, but the dorsal stripe and leg barring that denotes the color. He was only made in 1993 and 1994.
He's Near Mint with no rubs or marks seen! What a great restoration candidate! He's marked down solely for a bent foreleg (which you can correct with a warm hair dryer) and mild yellowing, which you can also fix by sunbathing him for a few days. He does have a slight odor of smoke that may collect while he's wrapped here, but should dissipate when you sunbathe him. He features soft dorsal stripe and leg barring on just his front legs. He also wears a faint sparkly sheen in his finish that I don't recall noticing on others from this release.. It's a really pretty touch that adds motion to his coat. Once he's sunbathed, I think he'll be super pretty! This mold is known to often be tippy, so we recommend Museum Putty or a Horse Rack as cheap insurance.
He even comes with his original box. If you don't want his box, let us know when you order and we'll recycle it, which may save you a bit in shipping.
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!
