The Naturecraft Ltd. company was founded in 1931 in Congleton, Cheshire, UK. It was one of Congleton’s oldest companies, and was headed until its buyout by Managing Director Peter Tomlins. Naturecraft England originally produced figurines such as dogs and other animals, as well as caricatures and other wall art. All items were originally made in the UK.
The address of the Naturecraft company was:
Tel: 01260 272727
In later years, the Naturecraft brand produced the Pawz and Best of Breed sub brands of figurines.
Naturecraft Ltd. was purchased in February 2005 by giftware importer Widdop Bingham & Co Ltd. Widdop Bingham discontinued many of the Timeless Characters, wall masks and other wall art, but kept most of the animal figurines. Manufacturing of new and existing figurines was moved to China. All ranges were expanded to incorporate clocks, mugs and other items, such as pictured notebooks.
Today, Naturecraft, Pawz by Naturecraft and Best of Breed figurines and gifts are still produced. The items are manufactured in China.
