Maker's Mark Type Collection Photo Gallery

The Maker's Marks in the photo gallery represent only a small number of those actually in possession at the SACRF. There are over 300 maker's marks currently in the database with more to be added in the future. Those in the collection were gathered from a variety of excavations that include Old Sacramento SHP, Old Town San Diego SHP, Monterey SHP, Sonoma SHP and Fort Ross SHP. The majority of ceramics originated in England and the United States; however, a few originate from France, Germany and Russia.
