Tudor Rose were one of those early plastics companies set-up in the years after the war that are sometimes hard to pin down as they were all using each other's moulds, and if they weren't mould-sharing, they were just copying!

They bought Kleeman's Kleeware, but kept the name active for some time, as they (T*R) were busy wholesaling plastic granules to the rest of the UK industry, and a lot of the toys can be found unmarked and with either name (the spaceships being the best example), these however only turn-up with the T*R marking.

They are - like most of the production of both companies - 'junior' or infant toys, and have a stylistic quality that renders the larger animals a bit 'demi-rond', you could even say they are slightly Art Deco in appearance, but they are also reasonably recognisable for what they are.

They all come in all five colours; black, grey, white, fawn/beige and plain-chocolate brown, with the pigs coming in an additional pink. I think this is all the poses but there may be a foal and an bull, or some smaller (unmarked?) piglets? But the rest are in storage, and I may be imagining all three!
