Georges Carette et Cie was a French toy company that was founded in 1881 by Georges Carette. The company produced a wide variety of tinplate toys, including trains, automobiles, and boats. The company was particularly known for its detailed and accurate replicas of vehicles. The company's most innovative period was between 1905-1914. Georges Carette was forced to leave Germany at the outbreak of World War I and his company ceased production in 1917. German producer Karl Bub took over some of the former Carette toy-cars and the English manufacturer Bassett-Lowke continued producing former Carette locomotives.
