This is the most comprehensive book written on Lefton China to date. What makes this book stand apart is the extensive price guide section containing company identification numbers, descriptions, and current prices for more than 7,600 different items made by the prolific Geo. Zoltan Lefton Company of Chicago, Illiis. Lefton collectors will also welcome the examples shown of over one hundred Lefton patterns, enabling quick identification of related pieces. A unique feature is the section describing and illustrating the popular Lefton Collections, including Colonial Village, Historic American Lighthouses, Lil Country Folk, Roadside U.S.A., and Tasha Tudor to name just a few. A company history, display of manufacturing marks, and over 360 color photographs of Leftons figurines, boxes, plates, planters, teapots, vases, and more--including items never before published--round out this colorful and useful presentation.
In addition to collecting Lefton China, Karen Barton designs and makes jewelry that she sells at fine art shows. She and her husband John live in Minnesota.
