Here is an unusual Lady Head Vase with Two Arms with Hat numbered 4228 by Lefton! This gorgeous Lefton Lady wears a lacy patterned strapless coral-colored gown leaving her shoulders bare. Her matching scarf wrap with hints of yellow (must be chiffon) wraps around the lower edge of her back and over her bent arms. She wears fashionably long chocolate brown gloves that disappear into the folds of her wrap. Her dark blonde, shading to brown, hair is upswept under a wide brim hat, once known as a picture hat. The hat curves to frame her lovely face and has an embossed lacy pattern to match her gown, with a chocolate brown band to match her gloves. Her delicate features are accented with a pair of long, applied eyelashes on her smoky eyelids. A becoming blush touches her cheeks and carries onto her shoulders and back.
This distinctive lady head vase in coral pink measures 6-inches tall on a 4-1/2 by 3-1/4-inch base.
Made by Lefton China circa the 1950s to 1960s, the original red and gold foil label that reads "Lefton's Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Exclusives, Japan" is intact, and the mold number 4228 is stamped on the bottom of the vase.
There is a pit, slightly larger than a pinhead, on her left glove near the elbow. She has a full left hand with all of her fingers, her right arm folded across her bodice, and both eyelashes. There are no chips, and I do not see any crazing.
