Lefton China was founded in Chicago Illinois in 1941 by a Hungarian named George Zolton Lefton, an immigrant sportswear manufacturer who collected fine china and porcelain as a hobby. In the mid 1940s Lefton began importing ceramic giftware and decorative items from all over Asia, and primarily Japan. Items are usually either stamped with the George Z. Lefton mark or have a red foil Lefton label. Today, Lefton items are becoming increasingly collectible and I am happy to share this adorable Lefton Dainty Miss marmalade jam jar. She is so cute!! Also, here are a couple super cute Anthropomorphic salt and pepper shakers by PY and Elbro. These are available here.
