Decorative heraldic painting on pewter miniatures of mediaeval knights was developed in the 18th & 19th centuries, and leaders in these arts included Adam Schweitzer and Carl Besold of Germany. But it wasn't until 1928 that Richard Courtenay started making a fully rounded miniature figure of an heraldic knight. By his death in 1963 he had produced several thousand lead examples. From 1978 to date Peter & Gilly Greenhill continue this tradition using finest pewter.
Today most of this work is exported to America with a concentration on the battles of the Hundred Years War, featuring known knights from mediaeval Europe.
