Burnham and Morrill Company Trademark for Cape Shore Brand Canned Mackerel

Contributed by Maine State Archives

This colorful trademark label for canned mackerel contains an image of three fishermen in a small open boat catching fish. It has a large mackerel in the foreground and a sailboat in the background. The label notes the award of gold medals at the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1876 and in Paris in 1878. This trademark label was submitted to the Maine Secretary of State in 1891 in order to obtain legal protection for the design.
