Age, Quality, Rarity...all three make a horse really Vintage!

Red-Eyed Glossy Alabaster 1961
I think back to my earliest Breyer; a glossy charcoal semi-rearing mustang that I had received as a birthday present when I was 7...he was the "King" of my herd, never getting into pretend horse battles like the others--just "watching" the others get "war wounds". He was made in the early 60's. To me, anything from the late 50's to early 60's is vintage to me, when things were quality, American made and made to last! Case in point, my exceptionally beautiful glossy alabaster red-eyed mustang...other collectors have seen him close up and personal...one comment over & over...they say: he looks so perfect, he looks like porcelain! Only a quality piece, made so well could hold up like this over the years....
