Crescent Toys was founded in London in 1922 by Henry G. Eagles and Arthur A. Schneider. The company specialized in hollow-cast figures and made toy soldiers, cowboys, and kitchen sets. After World War II, the original figures made of lead were discontinued and replaced by plastic products. At the same time, Crescent Toys also diversified into model vehicles made of diecast metal. In the late 1940s, three models of contemporary British cars in about 1/50th scale were introduced (Jaguar, Bentley and Austin Devon), followed by various trucks and a tractor. The company's most notable products by now were available from 1956 to 1962: A series of racing cars in exact 1/43rd scale with correct shapes and excellent detailing. About ten different models were released. In 1975, Crescent Toys returned to the market of diecast models with a series of 1/43rd scale Berliet trucks. These models remained in production until the company closed down in 1980.
