Labor Day Facts

September 1, 2014

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887.

More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.

Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

But Peter McGuire’s place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York.

Blue Danube

July 16, 2014

The Blue Danube pattern was inspired from a somewhat similar pattern created during the Chinese Yuan Dynasty (1260-1368 AD). The designs showcase flowers which in Chinese culture symbolize happiness and good fortune. This ancient Chinese pattern which was so sought after it paved the way for the creation of the Blue Danube pattern.

07-16-7AM

The Blue Danube china pattern was developed in 1951 Blue Danube China company, based in Japan and was distributed to the United States, Canada, Australia and part of Europe by Lipper International who held the patent for its design and distribution. The Blue Danube is under glazed on translucent porcelain and each piece is highly chip resistant and dishwasher safe.

A variety of backstamps were used throughout its production, the original being used in 1951 through 1976 showcased the words Blue Danube on a ribbon banner with the words Reg. US. Pat. Off. underneath it. Then it was followed with the boxed backstamp which was used between 1977 and 2000. At the start of 2001 a new backstamp was introduced with the words Blue Danube in a scrollwork and the word Japan beside it.

The Blue Danube china pattern has been discontinued in 2010 but replacements are still available online.
