Lefton (actually called Geo. Zoltan Lefton Company) was started in Chicago in 1941 by George Lefton, an immigrant from Hungary who's hobby was collecting fine porcelain. Mr. Lefton didn't manufacture his wares, he was an importer of Japanese porcelain but had very high quality standards for his manufacturers and that's why his items are still collected and highly regarded today.  His reputation earned him the name of The China King.  In the mid 1970's he started importing items from other countries such as Taiwan, Malaysia and China.  George Lefton died in 1996 and the company was sold in 2001 but the mark "Lefton" is still being used.  Lefton marks include: stamps, labels, or numbers, unfortunately when it is a paper (foil) label, they are almost always missing by the time we find them.  Lefton was sold to OMT Enterprises of Gardena, California, in 2005 and is now a division of that company.
