Company history and description of the company T.Cohn company

The T.Cohn company was founded about 1900 by Tobias Cohn.
The company made many tin litho toys such as sand pails. The first "playset" type item made by T.Cohn was a doll house in 1948.
During the Korean War in the 1950s plastic was in short supply and the Lido Toy Company supplied T.Cohn with many plastic figures for their playset line. The term superior was used as a brand name for the T.Cohn company.
Eventually it seems the T. Cohn name was removed. SUPERIOR inside a pennant was a more common logo used on the doll house furniture and some of the tin buildings. The small mounted western figures were based upon earlier figures made by Bergen/Beton. As these figures were also copied by Lido, Ajax and Archer among others it can be difficult to tell who made what.
