I spotted it at a tag sale not a mile from my house – dashed to it and picked it up. It is lighter than I expected. Sewer tile objects, until twenty years ago, were commonly found in southern Ohio. However, unless this one is hollow, it is redware type of a different type.

It stands 7 ¼” tall, the 6 ¾” lion resting on an oval base measuring approximately 6 ¼” by 4”.

He weighs 1 ½ lbs. (A sewer tile object, solid, would weigh at least twice that.)

His mouth is open, and his tongue is sticking out. Later, you will see the unglazed redware inside his mouth.

CONDITION REPORT: Excellent with only one tiny nip – meaningless, but I needed to find something to point out. In jargon used by redware collectors: “Fine to Excellent.”

Note the unglazed red clay inside his mouth.

As expected, it is unmarked.

More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.

It could use a bath.

The next image shows the east end of the lion walking west toward the jungle of my yard.

NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

I need a new soup can. Mine is fading.
