Hi!
Does anyone know about a manufacturer named "Durham"? I have two horses here that are made of metal and marked "1977".

Horses you're showing are dated with a year that is older than the company Susanne linked. So, it may be a different one or both are related in any way.
Your Horses are from a company called Durham Industries, they're made in Hong Kong and probably are numbered. scratch

The site says "we continue, since 1980...", which clearly states that the company was first established before 1980. From what I understand, 1986 is the year they were established AS A CLASSIC CAR MODEL MAKER. So, it could be the same Durham company. What do you think? And, yes, my horses are also marked "Made in Hong Kong".

As for the number marked on my horses, I will look when I get home.

I don't think it is the same company and my understanding is different from yours. Though, I could be wrong.
Durham Classics is a Canadian company of handmade automotive miniatures
Durham Industries Inc. is a USA manufacturer of toys.
I can't dissertate more at the moment, maybe some additional research is needed. Very Happy

That's weird... two companies actually have the same name? That IS confusing...

I have a book titled "Metal Horse Collections" authored by Carolyn Martin.  I looked up Durham in the index and found this: Durham Industries (N.Y.) Pieces are stamped "MADE IN HONG KONG" but printed on one package "Distributed by Grand Toys Limited, Montreal, Canada".

Durham was better known for making copies of some of the Hagen Renaker mini horses and one or two copies of Hartland Tinymites.  I have one of the Tinymite copies and a few of the HR copies.
