E.D. Pettengill Company Trademark for Shaker Ketchup

Contributed by Maine State Archives


Colorful trademark label for Shaker ketchup. The E. D. Pettengill Company had an exclusive arrangement with the Shaker religious community at Sabbathday Lake through which they distributed Shaker-made products for the retail market. This trademark label was submitted to the Maine Secretary of State in 1892 in order to obtain legal protection for the design. This trademark was first used in November 1885. After the death of her husband, E.D. Pettengill, Sarah Pettengill purchased all interest in the company and carried on the business herself.
