Rooster Decor

A collection to wake up your Country Home!


Rooster Decor is always a perfect way to add some Country Style to your home. At the Pink Pig you will always find a unique collection of Rooster decor. Some items are collectible like this pair of Lefton Roosters.

Lefton Roosters

The Lefton Company was founded by George Lefton, a Hungarian immigrant, who arrived in Chicago in 1939 with a passion for collecting fine porcelain china. Lefton traveled to Japan in 1945 to seal an importing agreement and the first Lefton China product marked "Occupied Japan" reached the US in 1946. Lefton has produced numerous products that are highly sought after by collectors today.

Black Velvet Rooster

This handsome fellow is a favorite of mine as it is one-of-a kind made by the artist Luella Doss. He is a charming tabletop rooster made using a rich velvet quilt fabric and is signed by the artist.

I am also a big fan of Country Art and found this colorful Rooster on Canvas at an auction last year. He is framed in an antique oak frame and I could see this rooster hung in a country dining room to add a punch of color to those white walls.

Rooster decor for the kitchen - "Oh Yes"....I love these old 1940's juice glasses or this whimsical Rooster doorstop in a fun fabric filled with sand.

Whimsical Doorstop

Find your rooster might be Country French

Needlepoint Rooster this beautiful needlepoint pillow or Country Primitive

Primitive Rooster this primitive wooden rooster from my own personal collection.
