Mikasa Dinnerware

Mikasa Dinnerware, Fine China & Crystal

Mikasa has long been recognized as a leader in tabletop fashion in dinnerware, crystal stemware, barware, flatware and decorative accessories. Quality and great design are synonymous with the Mikasa brand. The world's finest tabletop designers, working with the best factories, and using the most advanced technology in the industry, create products that are not only beautiful and well-made, but suitably priced for everyone's lifestyle.

Mikasa began in 1948 when George Aratani founded American Commercial Inc. in California. Initially a dinnerware importer, Mikasa grew into a dinnerware wholesaler over the next twenty years supplying dinnerware to popular department stores and other fine retailers. In 1957, the brand name Mikasa was introduced to the American public.

During the 1970's, Mikasa diversified its product lines to augment its already successful dinnerware lines with the introduction of crystal stemware, stainless flatware, crystal gifts and picture frames, ceramic vases, table linens and decorative accessories. In 2008 Mikasa became a part of the Lifetime Brands family.

All of the featured Mikasa patterns, without gold or platinum metal accents are safe to use in your microwave and dishwasher, making these dishes both beautiful and practical for every day use! Some stoneware patterns are also safe for oven use. However, it is recommended that when using stoneware in a standard oven, that the oven be cold when placing your stoneware into them. Turn the heat on only after placing the pottery in the oven. If you put the pottery in a hot oven, you risk breakage and cracking. The Fine China patterns are not standard oven safe nor microwave oven safe.
