Dear All,

There were questions about the level of abstraction of E37 Mark. 
Therefore I rewrite, following the relevant discussions when this class 
was defined. The argument was that it should directly link to the codes 
that are used in museum documentation for (registered) marks.

*Old scope note:*

Scope note:         This class comprises symbols, signs, signatures or 
short texts applied to instances of E24 Physical Human-Made Thing by 
arbitrary techniques in order to indicate the creator, owner, 
dedications, purpose, etc.

  This class specifically excludes features that have no semantic 
significance, such as scratches or tool marks. These should be 
documented as instances of E25 Human-Made Feature.

*NEW*

Scope note:         This class comprises symbols, signs, signatures or 
short texts applied to instances of E24 Physical Human-Made Thing by 
arbitrary techniques in order to indicate the creator, owner, 
dedications, purpose, etc. Instances of E37 Mark do not represent the 
actual image of a mark, but the abstract ideal, as they use to be 
codified in reference documents that are used in cultural documentation.

  This class specifically excludes features that have no semantic 
significance, such as scratches or tool marks. These should be 
documented as instances of E25 Human-Made Feature.


Can someone provide a relevant example from an authority document of marks?

Such as

Castagno, John. /Old Masters: Signatures and Monograms, 1400–Born 1800/. 
Lanham, MD: Scarecrow Press, 1996.

Caplan, H. H. and Bob Creps. /Encyclopedia of Artists' Signatures, 
Symbols & Monograms: Old Masters to Modern, North American & European 
plus More; 25,000 Examples/. Land O'Lakes, FL: Dealer's Choice Books, 1999.
