Don Winton's Twin Winton jars are very distinctive -- most had a light brown wood finish stain, lighter than the California Originals or Treasure Craft pieces, with some color embellishments. Additionally, some jars were offered in solid colors such as gray, red, avocado, orange, ivory, and pineapple.

Don and Ross Winton also did quite a bit of sculpting for the Brush Company. Their designs are distinguished by a W in the markings on the bottom of the jar.
