Red Wing 917 Lion Planter

Question:
I really wish I could attach a photo to this question, but my smartphone is not "smart" enough to do it. So I will describe as best I can. I have a planter or jardinaire in the shape of a lion that is laying down, head up. It has an almost "sphyinx" like face to it. Painted in lightbbrwons and tans. The detail on the main and tail are very shaggy. The bottom stamped with Red Wing USA 917. The it also is marked (like someone inscribed it) with JM 1976. Did Red Wing do greenware for pottery classes or is this a legitimate product that Red Wing sold? I’ve searched and searched and am completely flummoxed! Help me Red Wing experts! Thank you in advance, Stephanie

Answer: Hi Stephanie

Red Wing did produce a lion planter, which dates to around 1965. It is the correct number, but this one was done by someone else. when the factory closed, some molds were sold to other companies, and we call these items "hobby shop". with the name and date, I’m certain it wasn’t made by red wing. the factory closed in 1967. the original is worth a few hundred dollars, yours maybe 75.00 or so. thanks, steve n rose
