Silverado is a gorgeous pony. You can tell by the quantity made how popular this pony was.
Wall Street Gifts (as PonyPonyPony.com) was the first e-commerce site selling the Trail of Painted Ponies. In fact, we got the domain name just for them.
Silverado was introduced in the Winter of 2007. It retired in May 2013 - practically 6 years later. The last production was 6E/6060. In the Collectible World the lower the number, the more expensive. Our pony is 1E/3973 - so a fairly early pony. It has been sitting in its box for years. The box is red - and yes, it has a tag. It reads:
During the first half of the 20th century, parades and horse shows held in conjunction with rodeos, fiestas and fairs throughout the West fueled a demand for fancy, embroidered saddlery. Elegant, silver-mounted parade saddles, carved with floral and figural motifs, and with matching bridles, martingales and breast collars, were perceived as exquisite works of art. "Silverado" is a customized interpretation of this flashy tradition by Karlynn Keyes, Vice-President of The Trail of Painted Ponies, is a masterpiece by any definition.
The first number on the bottom of the Painted Pony is the Edition Number. This number will have an “E” after it (example: 1E, 2E, 3E). The second number refers to the number of that particular Painted Pony in reference to the Edition that it was created in. This number will be between 1 and 10,000, since there are 10,000 Painted Ponies in each Edition. Translating - our Silverado was the 3,973 pony produced. Total produced was 56,060.
