Modern Historical Instrument Makers' Marks

In the course of collecting modern reproductions of historical instruments over the years, it has become apparent that it would be useful to compile a visual reference guide to the marks used by modern makers of historical wind instruments, which due to the limitations of surface area tend to more concise and abstract than other instruments.

This page is a preliminary effort to produce such a reference guide to the various marks which appear on 20th and 21st century recorders, flutes, shawms, crumhorns, dulcians/curtals, sordunes, kortholts, etc., sourced from my own collection and public online sales listings.  

Corrections and additions are welcome. 

Please submit them via the contact form, accessible here.
