The owners and partners of the company were Mr. The company manufactured inexpensive, but well-made tin toys both before WWI and again after the war, until 1922. Surprisingly, for low-cost toys, there were some very complex toys made that had as many as 42 different pieces of tin plate with tabs. The small tabs were made to fit into small slots and then bent to hold together the 2 different pieces.
