Hi! Here is a hollow unicorn that I bought back in 1986. It is made with the same material Breyer uses. Does anyone know what brand actually made this unicorn, please?

Looks like a knock off of an actual Breyer mould:

Do you think it has been knocked off by Breyer themselves?

If it was made by Breyer, it wouldn't be a knock off Wink
What scale is it? If it's not around 1:9, it's definitely a knock off.
I had smaller "Made in China" knock offs of Breyer models myself. Also, they weren't made of the same material as originals, it was a different kind of plastic - it's easier to tell once you have an opportunity to hold in hands a genuine Breyer.

The scale is shown by the Canadian Dollar coin besides it; the coin itself measures around 3cm wide, maybe a little less. I guess it is a 1/9.
