Factory marks

This index lists the most common marks found on Delftware. It also includes the marks and initials used by 17th- and 18th-century potteries, as well as 19th- and 20th-century factories producing wares in the Delftware style.

If you are unable to find your mark in the alphabetical list, check the figurative marks. If ‘Delft’ is listed under your object / is inscribed on the base of your object, look to see if you can find the name of the factory too.

This index is divided into four categories, based on whether a mark is from Delft and whether it has been identified. Read more about how to use the index and how it was compiled here.

This index will be extended and expanded with new information and marks over the coming period.
