Sham

   

The Sham mold was introduced in 1984 as part of Breyer's Artist Series with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp. In 1995 a "'95" mold stamp was added and discontinued at the end of that year, although some models with this mold mark showed up as part of the 1996 BreyerFest dinner model run. A "wheat ear" is located high on the molds' chest, just below and slightly to the right of the windpipe. Originally included to match the description of the Sham from Marguerite Henry's King of the Wind, it was removed from the mold sometime between 1984 and 1988, likely in late 1984. Sham was sculpted by Rich Rudish and is Breyer mold #410.

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.
