This is a set of 8 hand painted lead cowboy figures. They were manufactured by W. Britain in London England. Each has one moveable are (the one holding the gun). One cowboy is missing the end of his shotgun and the lid is missing one end piece otherwise they are in nice vintage condition. The figures are approx. 2 1/4" high.
The name Fred Wisstock is on the box and this is what I learned;
In the early 20th Century and up until 1930, Whisstock was employed by Britain's to design the box labels in a single style for their lead toy soldiers series.
