Mikasa Glassware

Mikasa glass offers the ideal combination of versatility with en vogue styling. An expansion from their original ceramic dinnerware specialty, Mikasa stemware and drinkware continues to garner generations of fans with their stylish yet sensible lines.

Originally known as American Commercial Incorporated, the Mikasa company began in New Jersey as a distributor of international ceramics in the '30s. Soon after, they turned to the creation of their own lines of dinnerware with production contracted out to other, mainly European, producers. The immense success of this transition yielded their further foray into glass stemware and tableware at the end of the '70s.

Mikasa glass pieces continue to be associated with quality craftsmanship. Their range, which spans from entry level glass to the more luxurious realm of crystal, makes their pieces suitable for both everyday sets and unique, elegant glass gifts.
