Mikasa, a division of Lifetime Brands, Inc., is proud to be recognized worldwide as the leader in tabletop fashion in dinnerware, crystal stemware, barware, flatware and decorative accessories. Quality and great design have been synonymous with the Mikasa brand name for over a half-century.
George Aratani founded Mikasa as "American Commercial Inc." in the state of California in 1948. Initially a dinnerware importer, Mikasa grew into a dinnerware wholesaler over the next twenty years, supplying dinnerware to Bloomingdales, Macy’s, May Department Stores Company and other fine retailers. In 1957, the brand name Mikasa was introduced to the American public.
During the 1970s, Mikasa diversified its product lines, augmenting 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. Lifetime Brands' corporate headquarters are located in Garden City, New York, and its distribution centers are located in Robbinsville, New Jersey and Rialto, California.
Mikasa is the result of the typical American success story and has plans to continue the growth of its retail division throughout the United States in the years to come.
