Vintage Geo Z Lefton Signed Praying Angel Figurine

This is for a Geo Z. Lefton praying angel.

She is in good overall condition but does have some chipped paint at the hemline of her dress. This adorable figurine measures 4 3/4" tall x 2 1/4" wide. Underneath her skirt is signed Geo Z. Lefton. Anything with the Geo Z Lefton signature is one of the EARLIEST Lefton pieces and is highly collectible.

George Zoltan Lefton (also referred to as Geo Z Lefton, Geo Zoltan Lefton, and G.Z. Lefton) arrived in the United States from Hungary in 1939. Although Lefton made his living in Hungary in sportswear, his passion for fine porcelain turned from a hobby into a business when he founded the Lefton Company in 1941 in Chicago.

Lefton is well known both for its production of items in Japan and for the Made in Occupied Japan marking. Admiring the quality of Japanese porcelain, Lefton was one of the first American businessmen to deal with the Japanese after World War II. Lefton imported goods from Japan under the now well known marking "Made in Occupied Japan" at a price affordable to the American public. Japan served as the primary source of items for Lefton until the mid 1970s, when it was replaced by other low cost producers.

Please see photos for further details.
