Shire

  

The Shire (or Shire A) mold was introduced in 2002. It differs from the Shire B in that the Shire A head is not tucked in toward the neck. The mold was sculpted by Kathleen Moody and is Breyer mold #627A.

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.
