ArtMark Chicago, LTD was started by Mark Lozins and Arthur Born originally as “Lozins & Born, Inc”. Later the company name was changed to Artmark-Chicago, Ltd. (Again using their names, this time first names Art and Mark) and that became their trademark used on their red and gold diamond foil labels. The company didn’t manufacture their ware, they were an importer/distributor of Giftware, Collectables, Figurines, Dolls, Vases, Crystal, Housewares, Souvenirs, Novelties, Home Decor, and General Merchandise from 1947 to 2002. They would ship items from Chicago to mail-order houses and general-merchandise stores. Seems Artmark had many different trademarks / companies and each company was started at different dates and closed on different dates, some as late as 2016. Mark Lozins passed away in Chicago in 1988.
