1830?? I thought I read somewhere that the first trademark was for Morton salt, but I'm not sure that is what you are asking for???

The first blank is for the year, the second is for the type of craftmen.

-- mitch hearn (, April 08, 2002.

Don't know the year but I'll guess that the answer to the second part of your question would be something like barrels of English rum or other liquor?

Ok, 1650 and weavers

The first product with a trade mark was not a liquid.~

-- mitch hearn (, April 08, 2002.

The product was required to be marked as to their place of origon after a case of royal food posioning and to make it easier the year was 1266.~~

Having never tried lutefisk, I looked up the recipe, its cod maranaded in lye, served with enought mustard and pepper to discuise a whole hog. Cab, I am starting to understand your posts!! But lutefisk is not the answer.

bakers? I think I remember it was something like they had to put their own 'trademark' on each loaf of bread?

-- heather (, April 08, 2002.

Bakers are correct, they had to mark their product so the royal family would know who to come after when there was defective products.
