Turquoise is a natural stone that comes in many hues, and is traditionally found in southwestern jewelry and adornments. There are many varieties of turquoise, including the remarkable Bisbee turquoise that was found in Bisbee, Arizona.
Varying shades of blue are surrounded by a chocolate matrix, and often, copper veining that accents the stone’s color. Arizona’s Lavender Pit copper mine yielded a fine supply of this special Bisbee turquoise, which was highly sought after for its beauty. While this mine is now closed, Bisbee turquoise is still prized by collectors and artisans.
True to the natural stone that inspired her decoration, Bisbee has a unique speckled body color that mimics the gorgeous natural hues of turquoise. Her coat is accented by metallic copper veining that is the hallmark of Bisbee turquoise. Stunning from every angle, Breyer has indeed unearthed a rare beauty to be treasured!
*Please note Pre-Orders are charged at the time of purchase and will be shipped once the Bisbee model has arrived – approximately Mid-May.
Update 2: Patriot is here! Those of you who have Pre-Ordered should be contacted soon with either tracking numbers or any other information we need from you. If you are still wanting to purchase a Patriot horse we do have a few left for purchase. Keep in mind quantities are limited and we will not be receiving any more.
Finally if you are interested we also just received Toro, a flagship model from Breyer. You can find out more about Toro here.
Update: We are still waiting on this horse. Breyer’s time line for April delivery appears to be a bit off. As soon as we see the horse we will post another update saying it is here!
Coming soon! Breyer’s Patriot horse is a clear plastic horse with a patriotic theme of Red, White, and Blue with stars throughout the body of the model. Breyer’s description reads as follows:
On July 4, 1776, the American colonies celebrated their new-found independence from the British Empire. In celebration of Independence Day 2016, the master artists at Breyer have created a unique and beautiful decorative model in honor of the 240th anniversary of the first Independence Day! Taking his name from the brave American colonists who fought in the Revolutionary War against the British, Patriot is festively decorated in the colors of the American flag, complete with stars along his flanks and on his face. Not only is Patriot’s color symbolic of America, but his breed is too! The American Saddlebred is one of the nation’s first unique breeds of horse. Called the “American Horse” during the time of the American Revolution, the Saddlebred became popular mount for everyone from farmers to pioneers, and was the horse of choice for war generals Robert E. Lee (Traveller) and Ulysses S. Grant (Cincinatti)!
