The John Hill Co of England. John Hill as a former employee of Britains and set up as a rival in Islington, London. After the war they moved to Burnley, Lancashire. Johillco frequently sold their figures loose rather than in boxed sets. The early figures are hollow cast lead. In 1956 they started producing plastic figures under the name Hillco. Due to the cheapness of the figures and the individuality of their poses, Johillco figues were found more in working class homes than the expensive Britiains that came in boxes of rigid identical poses. The company probably used a variety of sculptors leading to various grades of quality of Johillco figures, that have been called "the good, the bad, and the ugly".
Chief figure designer for Johillco, Wilfred Cherrington, in conjunction with a Mr Leaver started his own company called Cherilea.
