You probably have seen porcelain or other items marked "Foreign" and wondered what that meant. The Congress of the United States passed the McKinley Tariff. Act on October 1, 1890.
It imposed tariffs on imports and demanded that the name of the country or origin be stamped or printed on items imported into the United States. Beginning in 1893, every item that was imported into the United States had to be marked "Foreign".
Due to a revision in 1914, all items after 1923 had to be marked with a complete mark.
