Designed by Arthur Gredington, the standard chestnut version of this model is not hard to find but this dappled grey, issued from 1958-62, is one of the rarer Beswick models.

Back in 2006 a similar model in good condition took £3500 at the Stamford rooms.

This example came with the a/f caveat, the horse’s front leg having been broken and repaired. Against a £500-800 estimate, it sold to a collector at £1000.
