Lefton China "Swallowtail" Butterfly Figurine
For more than 60 years, Lefton China has been an importer of fine china products. Lefton China has been widely distributed, with more than 10,000 retail locations in the United States at one time.
George Zoltan Lefton left his native Hungary in 1939 and moved to Chicago, Illinois. While he had no professional experience with porcelain or china, he was an avid collector. He founded Lefton China in Chicago in 1940, taking advantage of a move to a new country to explore his passion for fine china. Lefton China continued to be produced in Japan until the 1970s. Production in the 1980s and beyond moved to Taiwan and Malaysia. Most importantly, the quality remained high. The family sold Lefton China in 2001, but production under the Lefton China label continues today.
This beautiful swallowtail butterfly is an exceptional Lefton figurine. The predominately yellow and black butterfly is perched on a section of an apple tree branch with shaded green leaves and single white blossom accent. The figure measures 3 1/2" in length, 3" in width and 2 1/2" in height. The red and gold foil label reads "Lefton Trade Mark Exclusives - Taiwan R.O.C." and ink stamp "07784". There are no cracks, chips or repairs.
