Catalina Island Pottery Made in the USA, But When?

(Attached) photo for your reference.

Sunday, June 8th, we took a day trip to Catalina Island for my Mom’s 72nd birthday.

It was a glorious day and a wonderful adventure; her first trip.

We took the Skyline bus tour with Stephen, who was a hoot and very informative.

He discussed Catalina pottery and it peaked my interest because two weeks ago; while purging and cleaning I found a mug we used as office supply storage marked with a “MADE IN THE USA CATALINA TM” with an outline of the island as well.

I did a few searches online and did not find this particular raised stamp marking anywhere else.

We seem to remember having owned the mug for seven or more years.

The question is, “Is it authentic Catalina pottery or something more commercial/common?”

Thank you in advance for any information or assistance that can bring us closer to finding out.

* I sent the above letter to the Catalina Island Museum. Stay tuned!
