Charbens vintage toys
Charbens was founded by brothers CHARles and BEN Reid in London in the 1920s, Charbens lead items were often marked RD ‘Registered Design’ and, from the 1930s, some carried the brand name MIMIC TOY. This was a tongue in cheek choice as many Charbens products were ‘inspired by’ the likes of Britains and other leading manufacturers.
Best known for their amazing circus figures, their lead range also included cowboys, Indians, medieval, farm, zoo, promotional, trades people and civilians.
