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 and a Surprise Antique Street Fair

We were in for a total surprise! Spent the day wondering around a cute little town called Healdsburg, CA, and noticed some signs that said ‘Antique Fair’ and pointed to the left. Of course we headed in that direction and came upon a wonderful sight with some 50+ booths all setup in a park-like setting. WOW! We had a really fun time wondering the booths and ended up finding some amazing items wich are pictured right here. Some adorable Lefton Bluebirds, a vintage German Staffordshire Poodle Figurine, Vintage German Half Doll Lady Teapot, a Vintage Napco Lady Headvase. The dealers were all incredibly nice and started negotiating the minute we walked into their spaces. Great experience at this unexpected event for us. Hope you are all having a great weekend. We are going to lay low this weekend as June 1st is going to be 98 degrees!! Summer is here with a bang in Wine Country California!

All items can be found at our eBay store – Crazy4Me eBay
