For auction is a fantastic carved Rearing Stallion, Limited Edition #667, produced in 1997 and handcrafted in the USA by the Red Mill
Manufacturing Company. This horse figurine is signed by well-known artist Pam T. Stoneburner. It is in excellent condition with no cracks,
chips or repairs noted. It is from my private collection and from a smoke-free home. All three felt pads are still attached as well as the
original Red Mill gold foil with red letters sticker. The stallion is heavy and solid, balanced nicely and securely on its tail. It measures
approximately 14" long from the tip of the tail to the hoof of the extended left leg, by 10-3/4" tall to the tip of the ear. It has a rich
chocolate brown finish. The eyes have the original black paint on them and the detail of the mane, face and tail is very detailed.
T is a small area on the underside of the two back hooves that the horse stands on, next to the felt pads, w the darker finish has
rubbed a bit to a lighter finish, but this is totally hidden from view since it is the horseshoe area of the hoof underneath that can't be seen.
This occurs from normal wear sitting on a surface. This is an excellent display piece perfect for your horse collection!
Red Mill Manufacturing pieces were made of crushed pecan shells and resin. The factory in Fishersville, VA, closed its doors in 2001 after
the death of one of the owners, and the molds were sold. That is why you now see repros under the name of Red Mill Craft Company which
are now made in China. The original Red Mill Manufacturing Company figurines made in the USA are now highly collectible since no more
will ever be produced. Red Mill Manufacturing had its original works carved by local artists. They were then molded and a combination of
crushed pecan shells and resin made the replicas. Each piece was rubbed with a soft cloth to bring out the patina so each piece is unique,
depending on the resin/stain used. Some were made in an off-white color which has come to be even more desirable as t were not as
many produced. These figurines originally were only available through high end gift stores.
I pack really well with lots of peanuts and bubble wrap because despite their rugged appearance, Red Mill pieces are delicate like porcelain.
