Heritage of England - There is very little information on the Heritage company    

 

Identifying Heritage Products - Most of the Heritage Products are not named so identification is difficult. Some of the designs were similar to Bossons (ie - Eskimo and Bluetits). Their models lacked the detail of Bossons products. Heritage mainly produced heads, figurines, animals and lamps. Their pieces did come with a swing tag similar to Bossons.

 

The backs of Heritage models came with a recessed wire hanger and small square cut out similar to 'Bossons', or the same recessed wire with a round hole below as shown in the photographs below.

Samuri backs

Eskimo backs

 

A number of the Heritage products appear to use similar faces with maybe an added a hat, beard or clothing to create a different model. Examples of this are shown in the following photographs where the actual face is very similar on all three models.

Scotsman

Sheik

Viking

The Heritage company was based in Congleton and later moved to Stoke on Trent in England.

Chinaman?

No name on this model like many of the other Naturecraft products. The dimension are 5 3/4 high x 4 1/2.

Notice the small rounded melon hole as opposed to the square hole that is on other models. Does the back tell us which are the older models. Could it be the squared ones are the older models, or maybe the later ones. We do know that these heads have (up to now) two different backs, square hole or round hole.

Bossons has the similar looking 'Coolie' and Naturecraft has a similar 'Ming Yin' and Heritage unknown so far....
