Circa late 1800's - early 1900s. Original paint, faded but original. Nearly four feet tall, matter of fact stout cast iron lawn jockey.
Measures 47" tall, base 18 1/2" x 18 1/2" outside bolt pattern (16" X 16" at just the square parts), 22 1/2" at widest part (across arms, end to end) weight est. If necessary I can get an exact weight, this may take a few days. Notice at the bottom of the base, 4 cast iron bosses base is a one piece heavy casting, including these bosses, for securely bolting statute.This is the early version with the 1 piece heavy cast base, later versions had either a 2 piece or 4 piece base. Many did not have the 4 bosses for bolting down, they only had a center hole for one bolt. This version is the heaviest version. No cracks or breaks, a perfect example of the early quality castings and craftsmanship. This is the Real Deal, by all standards is the earliest and highest quality one.
