The Stanley Since 1913 on the insulated mugs is NOT "The Stanley Works" which we
all know and love.  It's a different Stanley.

I believe there are at least three unrelated organizations named "Stanley."

1) The Stanley Works, with the notched rectangle logo.

2) Stanley Home Products, a maker of cleaning agents and cleaning tools.

3) Pacific Market International LLC, which bought the right to make/sell vacuum
flasks and mugs marked "Stanley"  I do not believe this product line ever
belonged to The Stanley Works, although I would be happy to accept evidence to
the contrary.  I believe Pacific Marketing International bought the rights from
some successor of Landers, Frary & Clark, who had absorbed  "Stanley Bottle"  /
"Stanley Insulating Company of Great Barrington, MA

Don't cite me as an authority on any of this!

Connecticut manufacturer Landers, Frary & Clark made many items which would be
considered collectible, or at least desirable, today.

Just spent the weekend camping with my 3 year old grandson - what a blast.

His dad brought along a couple of stainless insulated cups marked STANLEY.
Nothing odd there - but under the logo it said “since 1913”.  What happened in
1913 that they would call that their start date?

Also, I though this experiment failed in the 60’s


and why would it have this disclaimer:

 WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead, which is
known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other
reproductive harm.

Unless you were planing old lead water pipes?
