This turn of the century statue is both cast metal and ceramic. The ceramic pedestal was made in England while the cast metal knight was presumably made in New York City.
The bottom diameter is 6"; the height is 7", and the halberd (or spear) measures 8" in length. And this is a HEAVY piece! There is one gilt stripe on the center of the concentric rings; part of the gilt stripe has worn away. There is one small chip in the ceramic pedestal near where the gilt stripe has worn away. The metal knight and his halberd (or spear) are in excellent condition.
This statue was made by Vienna-born Joseph R. Palmenberg, whose three sons (Raymond P., Emil T. & William F.) were in business as late as 1901. Their company was known as J. R. Palmenberg's Sons and primarily manufactured and sold display fixtures. Based in New York City, in 1901 their sales office was located at 710 Broadway and their factory was located at 89 and 91 West Third Street.
