About Us

The owners of Mercator Trading have over 20 years experience of dealing in toys and figurines, and have been registered as a UK limited company since 2005.

We have an International client base, and travel extensively buying & selling figures around the World.

Although based in the UK, our stock includes German and French manufacturers:

  • Lucotte and Quiralu
  • Durso of Belgium
  • Jones of the US
  • CC of Italy
  • Reamsa of Spain
  • and many others
  • Georg Heyde
  • Spenkuch
  • Haffner
  • Hausser Elastolin
  • Lineol
  • Mignot
  • SR ( Simon & Rivollet )

In other words, we stock interesting toy figures wherever they were originally made and whatever material they are made from.

We aim to carry a stock of the ‘connoisseur’ manufacturers. Mainly UK firms such as:

  • Richard Courtenay
  • William Carman
  • Greenwood & Ball
  • Charles Stadden

We also carry figurines by French manufacturers such as:

  • Gustave Vertunni
  • Ballada
  • Metayer
  • Berdou

These are in great demand, so join our mailing list for advance notification of new stock before it hits the website !

We also carry odd ball pieces - too vast a range to list here, but you just never know what we might have in stock.

We stand at Toy Fairs most weekends throughout the UK. We also attend the Old Toy Soldier Show in Chicago, USA every September, and the composition figure show in Bad Nauheim, Germany every October.

Please see Mercator News for an up to date list of toy fairs we will attend over the next 12 months.
