#430037 Breyer Maurice:
Collector Club Exclusive Collie/Cattle Dog Cross Micro Run
Meet Maurice, a collie/cattle dog cross! His beautiful red and white coat sets off his blue eyes and eager expression. Breyer’s “Lassie” was first introduced in the late 1950’s and has made only the occasional appearance in the Breyer line up. This super rare micro run will be available to only 40 lucky winners!
The Lassie mold was sculpted by Chris Hess and was first introduced in 1956. Not including Maurice, he has only had 3 releases:
- #65 Lassie was chestnut and white. He was produced from 1968 – 1965.
- #323 Honey Collie was a light golden chestnut and white. He was produced from 1995 -1996
- #702691 Jester was produced in a brown tricolor. He was a 2001 BreyerFest Tent Special Run and was limited to 600 pieces.
Interestingly, I have had no models on the Lassie mold pass through my store. You can find pictures on ID Your Breyer.
I have the Collector’s Club Exclusive Micro Run #430034 Dugan on the Bassett Hound mold available for sale. You can find him on my website. Like Maurice, Dugan was limited to 40 pieces.
