This figurine was given to Rex Moravec as a birthday present from Sam's daughter, Debbie. It is hand inscribed by her, Happy Birthday Mr. Sam signed the piece as well. This is an exclusive, rare and very special piece from the Moravec's personal Precious Moments collection and it would make a wonderful addition to yours or a memorable gift for a loved one, as well as an excellent investment.

Every item I have listed in this store category, Moravec's Precious Moments, was created by Sam Butcher for his various collections; Jonathan & David, Precious Moments, McCoon County, etc. The items are in excellent, undamaged condition however for the rare occasions where there may be signs of wear on an item, it will be noted in the description and shown in photos. While some of the boxes may show wear, the figurines are all in like new condition. What makes these items really special is that each one of them comes from the personal, private collection of Sam's dear friend, mentor and beloved high school art teacher Mr. Moravec (Rex) and his amazing wife, Mrs. Moravec (Millie) of Anderson, CA. I have been truly blessed to call the Moravec's and their wonderful family my friends for nearly 20 years, in fact Millie is my best friend in this world.
Sadly Rex passed away in 2010, but Millie remains just as active as ever at the young age of 92. Because her new home is much smaller than the one she left, she is no longer able to display her Precious Moments figurines so they have unfortunately remained in storage since her move. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day! Please note that the photos below are for reference only and will not be included with the figurine.
