Tayler & Barrett

Taylor & Barrett produced a number of toys, usually made of lead (by the hollow casting process). The company was established by two brothers-in-law: Fred Taylor and A.R. Barrett.

They produced road signs, petrol pumps and street lamps, plus fire engines and a rather attractive-looking trolleybus. They also made emergency vehicles, an ice cream salesman on a tricycle, plus a number of cars and small commercials, dating from the 1930s.

After the Second World War the two partners went their separate ways, forming 'F.G. Taylor & Sons' and 'Barrett & Sons', London. The London trolleybus was produced in two sizes and after the war it continued in production from 'Barrett & Sons'.

When they seperated they split the moulds the toys were made in and this makes some pieces difficult to identify.

How many versions are there of the Taylor Barret trotter horses ?
That's really difficult to say. I see yellow and red carts and riders in different colours. I can't give an exact figure. At the moment there is only one for sale on eBay: Taylor Barrett trotter.
