We usually stock English bone china. This Japanese teacup and saucer by Lefton China could not be ignored. It is hand painted. The cherries are fascinating. The workmanship on the saucer and around the top of the outside of the cup are exceptional. This is porcelain, not bone china.

George Zoltan Lefton arrived in the United States from Hungary in 1939. Although Lefton made his living in Hungary in sportswear, his passion for fine porcelain turned from a hobby into a business when he founded the Lefton Company in 1941 in Chicago. After WWII started, he closed that shop. With the help of Nunome, a Japanese friend, he was introduced to contacts in Japan where he was able to establish relationships with china producers.

Lefton China continued to be produced in Japan until the 1970s. Production in the 1980s and beyond moved to Taiwan and Malaysia.
