This set is clearly marked "Lefton", however finding a pattern name is proving to be impossible. I know this is an authentic piece not a reproduction and is at least 90+ years old. (inherited from my Great Grandmother's collection)
I have contacted replacements seeking help in identifying this pattern, but at the time of this post, they have not be able to identify or specifically date it. I believe I have exhausted my resources at this point.
I was hoping someone out there in "collectorland" might be able to help me. I would appreciate any information anyone might have in helping me give this piece a proper name besides just Lefton.
Thank you in advance for any and all information and help you might be able to provide.

    Lefton wasn't a manufacturer, they were an importer, founded in Chicago 1941. Your pieces seem to be from 1950 - 1955, judging from the hallmark. As for the pattern, you may be able to find it in Loretta DeLozier; Collector's Encyclopedia of Lefton I, II, or III.
