The Lefton China Company was the creation of Mr. George Zoltan Lefton who migrated to the US from Hungary in 1939. He embarked on a new career and began shaping a business that sprang from his passion for collecting fine china and porcelains. His vision was to develop a source from which to obtain fine porcelains by reviving the postwar Japanese ceramic industry, which dated back to antiquity. As a trailblazer he soon earned the reputation of “The China King”. Counted as the most desirable and sough-after today are items such as Bluebirds, Miss Priss, Angels, and Figurines.
