So Mikasa is a midline high volume glass exporter, but that doesn't mean they don't offer some beautiful glass. This basket was designed by Larry Laslo during the time he worked for them in the 1980s. The label on base reads Laslo for Mikasa Japan. Larry Laslo was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, studied at the Philadelphia College of Art, moved to New York where he illustrated for several important journals, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, and Playboy. He went on to design furniture, and started his own business. This beautiful basket was produced in 1982. I hope you enjoy looking at it!
