  • Pattern: Heritage Brown (Floral) NE 613
  • Made in Japan
  • Vintage:  1953 – 1971
  • Details:  This is such a pretty set of salt and pepper shakers!  They are delicate and beautiful with white and red roses surrounded by green and brown leaves.  The flowers are hand painted and there’s a small brown branch on the back that’s also hand painted.  They both have a beautiful design on top in gold.  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”, at some point these lost their Lefton sticker that said these were made in Japan.  These pieces are high quality, glazed porcelain but not excessively shiny.  They are Lefton pieces, part of their Heritage Brown pattern collection which includes plates, cups, an entire tea set, etc.

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.
