Mikasa (Japan) 'Forget Me Not' from the Mediterrania range, Salt and Pepper Shakers
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 produced a number of bright and fun designs across their expansive dinnerware and tea services, proving popular with consumers. Today these designs are highly sought after by vintage collectors.
