Mikasa "Granville" pattern
Mikasa “Granville” pattern

Mikasa was established as a trading company in the 1930s. In the 1950s, Mikasa added ceramic dinnerware to its range. It has since become their main product. Mikasa China does not manufacture dinnerware; instead, it imports product, initially mostly from Japan, but now from some 150 factories in 20 different countries. This arrangement allows it it adjust its product line to changing taste and, as a result, Mikasa has become a leading fashion brand.

The Mikasa Group’s brand names include Studio Nova which is aimed at a young, casual market, Home Beautiful which is targeted at the mid-range consumer for everyday use and Christopher Stuart which aims to provide a wide selection of styles at a competitive price as well as the up-market Mikasa brand. Although it originally sold only porcelain, the company has expanded its range to include earthenware, stoneware, bone china, glass stemware, stainless steel flatware and gift items.
