This company was started in 1940, based in Chicago, Illinois. Lefton's full name is the George Zolton Lefton China Company, and it has more than 17 showrooms across the country! Leftons are known for having nicer detailing than a lot of other importers and may help to identify your model (all known marks include the word, "Lefton.") These fine china pieces are becoming more popular at antique shows but you may get lucky enough to find them at a small shop, garage sale or flea market. (Information for this write up was obtained from the book, Animal Figurines, by Mike Schneider.)
