  • Details:  This is such a pretty set of salt and pepper shakers from Lefton!  They are delicate and beautiful with white and red roses surrounded by green and brown leaves on a hand painted brown porcelain background.  They both have a beautiful gold design on top.  These MUST be hand washed, no dishwasher in order to maintain condition and design.  They both have rubber stoppers, we don't believe these are the original stoppers, in case that makes a difference to you.  The bottom is stamped: "NE613".   They are part of Lefton's Heritage Brown pattern collection which includes plates, cups, an entire tea set, and more.

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.
