Lefton China was founded by George Zoltan Lefton an immigrant from Hungary after he arrived in Chicago, Illinois in 1939 and established the company in 1940. He had previously worked in the clothing and sportswear industry, but he was a collector of fine porcelain and dreamed of entering that business. Lefton had always admired the quality and workmanship in finer Japanese and oriental porcelain, and after the end of World War II, he pursued business relationships in post-war Occupied Japan to export Japanese porcelain to America. Lefton made a wide variety of pieces, from kitchenware and utilitarian pieces to purely decorative pieces to be displayed on the living room shelf.
