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 Gunsmoke.

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.
