Brahma Bull

(c) BreyerCollectables.com  

The Brahma Bull was introduced in 1958 with no mold marks. Some time in the early 1980s the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp was added and some have the "B" stamp as well. The mold scrotum is a separate, added-on part, and at least a few models escaped the factory as steers, lacking the scrotum but otherwise the same as their fully-equipped brothers. The mold was copied from a porcelain bull sculpted by Edward Marshall Boehm and is Breyer mold #70.

A symbol means that I don't yet have a picture of that model. If you can help, please see the Help Wanted section. Clicking on any photo below will open a larger version of that picture.
