Lefton bluebirds, there’s something undeniably captivating about their allure. With their delicate features and cheerful expressions, these charming little creatures have soared into the hearts of collectors worldwide. In this blog, we’ll explore bluebirds by manufacturers Norcrest, Napco Lefton, and Topline Imports, the origins of these delightful figurines, discover how they became a beloved symbol of happiness and hope, and share the best tips and price guide for collectors.

NOTE: You can read about my collections here at Antique Trader Magazine

Norcrest bluebirds and Topline Imports bluebirds are often confused with Lefton bluebirds because they were also produced during the same era and have similar designs. Norcrest bluebirds were produced by the Norcrest China Company, which was founded in Japan in 1953. Norcrest bluebirds are typically marked with a “Norcrest” stamp and are known for their bright colors and playful designs.

Topline Imports bluebirds were produced by the Topline Imports Company, which was founded in Japan in the 1950s. Topline Imports bluebirds are known for their simple, elegant design and often feature a matte finish.

One reason why collectors confuse these three types of bluebirds is that they were all produced during the same era and share similar design features. Additionally, many of these bluebirds were not marked with identifying information, making it difficult to determine their origin.

However, there are some key differences between these three types of bluebirds that can help collectors identify them. For example, Lefton bluebirds are typically marked with a “Lefton” stamp, while Norcrest bluebirds are marked with a “Norcrest” stamp. Topline Imports bluebirds are often marked with a paper label or foil sticker that reads “Topline Imports.”

Vintage Finds: Mermaid Figurine, Perfume Bottles, Lefton Bluebirds

 Hertwig and Company Merboy Figurine

Antiquing has been challenging recently as it seems the ‘good’ stuff is really hard to come by but, that usually is the case anyway. I can’t believe I came upon these vintage treasures!! I have never seen this Lefton Bluebird child’s set of a mug and bowl nor the ‘Dev’ perfume bottle of a pink Poodle dog and pretty little lady. But, the most exquisite of my treasures has to be this small bisque porcelain ‘Merboy’ figurine made in Germany by Hertwig and Company that was probably an aquarium figurine back in the early 1900s. Are you finding anything amazing lately, let me know!!
