Vintage Thingies Thursday: Lefton pitcher

I have quite a few pieces in this Lefton pattern "Heritage Brown." This pair lives on my dresser.

The Lefton Company was founded in 1941 and beginning in 1946 much of it was made in occupied Japan. The company still exists, although it has changed hands, but it still makes collectible china in its factory in California. This pattern dates from about the 1960s.

Join Coloradolady every Thursday for Vintage Thingies Thursday.

Join me tomorrow with something you've finished up this week!

How Pretty! My mother has a similar set on her dresser (I've been eying for years) But for obvious reasons she wont part with it. :)

I love your pitcher. I'm a china/ glass fan. I've never been to your blog before - it was fun to read. I never knew exactly what "short-sheeting" a bed was - now, I know! Thanks for dropping by my blog too. PAM
