Otagiri Mercantile Company ("OMC"), was a importer of porcelain and stoneware to the United States retail and restaurant trade from Japan for almost 50 years. The products were hand made and painted by Japanese artisans, and were marked with a yellow and gold sticker printed with the initials "OMC" and "Japan." Otagiri was sold to Enesco Group in 1994 and the line was discontinued.
