6 x 7 inches
HERE TO SEE A GALLERY
OF OTHER "RUTH" MULES.
This mule figurine was originally sculpted to be featured
in a 1:12 scale replica of the Longhorn Saloon from the TV series
Festus rode a wonderful male mule named Ruth and I am a big fan
of the show and Ken Curtis so "Ruth" was sculpted.
This one is the seventh of the 19 mules I did cast. The mold didn't last to the originally planned edition of 50 mules and there will be NO more "Ruth" mules or a second edition of this mold.
This seventh mule was fired 5 times, using eight different over glaze
colors to get the look of dapples through the glaze work.
The Ruth mule is 1:12 scale. He is 6 inches tall by 7 inches long.
His eyes are very life-like and the glaze work complicated with
dappling. Glossy Glazes. He is signed and numbered by myself, Meg Walker
under the glaze work, so the signature is permanent.
