Sea Star

(c) Janice Cox  (c) Janice Cox

The Sea Star mold was introduced in 1980 with the round "Breyer Molding Co." mold stamp, and some may have the "B" stamp as well. The mold is named for the central equine character in Marguerite Henry's book Sea Star: Orphan of Chincoteague. Sea Star was sculpted by Chris Hess and is Breyer mold #16.

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.
