Trakehner

(c) Janice Cox  (c) Janice Cox

The Trakehner mold was introduced in 1979 and has the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, with some models having the "B" stamp as well. The mold originally had a brand on the near thigh that looked like a pair of moose antlers. This brand was removed from the mold in the spring of 1996. The Trakehner was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #54.

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.
