ESD/Lefton/Enterprise Exclusive Miss Priss Puppy Pal Cookie Jar

Today is a snow day, so I am once again in a listing mood!


I don't have any old ESD catalogs, so I can't say for certain that "Puppy Pal" is the correct name for this jar and its matching series, but that is always what I have seen it called. There are a number of matching pieces, but this is the only one I currently own.


Contrary to what many people believe, ESD (Enterprise Sales and Distributors) is not "Canadian Lefton". ESD was a company in Canada whose owner, Harry Pearl, travelled to Japan with George Lefton. While in Japan, both men purchased a lot of the same items for their companies (and got a discount for puchasing such a large amount at one time); one exclusively in Canada and the other exclusively in the US. This is why both the Lefton and ESD labels are found on some identical pieces.
