Mikasa Moderna
Mikasa Moderna was Japanese made dinnerware from the mid-1980s. It is presented here due to its strong resemblance to Homer Laughlin's Fiesta. Virtually every piece was marked with the Mikasa Moderna backstamp along with the designer's name, Larry Laslo, and the glaze color.

The assortment consisted of basic sizes of plates and bowls as well as a teacup, saucer, covered sugar, creamer, and coffeepot. The creamer and teacup were given Fiesta-style ring handles whereas the teapot and sugar have flat, closed finials.

To the right is a comparison of a vintage Fiesta covered sugar in light green with a Mikasa Moderna sugar in sand.
