Family Arabian Stallion

   

The Family Arabian Stallion (abbreviated FAS) was introduced in 1958 with no mold marks whatsoever. In early 1960 a partial round "Breyer Molding Co." stamp appeared, followed later in that year by a full round stamp. In 1970 the "U.S.A." stamp was added, with some also having the "B" stamp as well. Early models have correct stallion genitalia, but by sometime between the early 1970s and 1983 the scrotum becomes a solid bar. The mold was sculpted by Chris Hess based on the Hagen-Renaker "Amir" sculpted by Maureen Love. It is Breyer mold #7.

All of the early Family Arabian models in alabaster, appaloosa, bay, charcoal, and palomino were used singly and in multiple sets and in touch-ability display boxes. While these boxes and sets have different numbers they used the same model, i.e. the palomino Family Arabian Foal was the same in #6 as in #456.

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.
