      I have a black metal cast horse with the exact same "Metropolitan Mfg" signature. Does anyone have any more info on the maker? And when they were made?

      Wow, I have one of these, probably not in as good a condition as yours (no reins) and the horseman is loose. If I may ask, how do you know its Gen. Custer? I was thinking it was a 16th century cavalier or something to do with the 3 musketeers.

      Well someone told me. Read ar8Jason above. He found the same piece at an Auction being called Custer.

      Found out this made as a figure that was placed on top of a clock. I found a number of these and no one had the same identification of the rider. So that is a mystery. But we know what its original use was. Before finding this info today, I was told by a friend that it was a clock top stature. It is "spelter" which is nothing more a mixture of different metals.
