About Lefton China

Lefton China became the brain child of the Hungarian- born and bred sportswear manufacturer, George Zoltan Lefton. His hobby was collecting fine porcelain, and his passion for collecting porcelain began to shape ideas for a new business. In early 1941, Lefton's desire for quality ceramics overpowered any feelings he may have had for fabric and fashion.

On Sunday, December 7, 1941, Mr. Lefton heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor, and without any fanfare, proceeded to board up the unprotected glass front of his Japanese friend's business. Just in time, in fact, because Chicago residents moved through the streets identifying Japanese citizens, threatening bodily harm and destroying every Japanese owned business they could reach until law and order was restored. This same friend played an important part in Mr. Lefton's selection of Japan as his major manufacturing source for some common and extremely rare items we collect which carry the Lefton paper label or fired-on mark.

Today, George Zoltan Lefton's company is the leading producer of ceramic giftware in the world.
