Johillco was a British maker of toy soldiers and other hollowcast lead figures begun in 1898 by a former Britains employee Mr F. H Wood. They are also known as John Hill & Company, J. Hill. or Jo Hill in lead figure markings. In 1956 they converted to plastic with those figures being marked Hillco. They went out of business in the 1960s. They produced both farm and wild animals.
