I was musing the origins of the hollow cast mounted figure I renovated and whilst searching through my shoe box of old figures I found the above figure which is the same as my damaged one . It's a Johillco Scots Grey - the horse is exactly the same but with the original riders head .. John Hill & Co. was started in 1898 by a former employee of Britains . Unlike Britains the figures were sold individually and aimed at the 'pocket money' market whilst Britains sold their figures in boxed sets . They generally had a simpler paint job and were sold in variety stores like Woolworth . So these two figures are probably over a 100 years old and still fighting tabletop battles .
