Lefton Christmas Candle Stick Holder with Handle
At Memory Lane.
This vintage Lefton Christmas single candle stick holder is milk-white It is decorated with green holly, red berries, and a gold edge. All of which were handpainted. Lefton was known for the importing of china that was painted according to their very stringent specifications.
Material: Porcelain China
Color: Milk-White, Green, Red, & Gold
Height: 1 ½ Inches +/-
Width: 4 ¾ Inches +/-
Bottom Marks: Lefton China, the Lefton Mark, Hand Paint, and the number 7945.
Bottom Sticker: Remnants of classic Lefton Red and Gold Sticker
Condition: Excellent – no cracks, chips, fractures, or repairs of any kind – as it was made. Having said that, there is two dots of black on the candlestick holder. I am assuming these are dots from the black coal that was used at the time in Japan to fire the porcelain in the kiln. The two black dots are one right above the other. They are located under the rim of the candlestick holder. Both dots are the same size.
