Oneida Silvermiths

オネイダ (Oneida)

Oneida Limited is one of the world's largest designers and sellers of stainless steel and silverplated cutlery and tableware for the consumer and foodservice industries. The company originated in a utopian community, the Oneida Community, established in the mid-nineteenth century. Oneida Limited's founder, John Humphrey Noyes, was the founder of the religious movement known as Perfectionism. The Oneida Community started production of silver-plated flatware and hollow-ware in 1899 using the "Community Plate" mark. Oneida Community purchased the Wm A. Rogers and 1881 Rogers companies in 1929 and started producing a somewhat lower-quality line of products using those companies' marks. In 1935, Oneida Community changed its name to Oneida Ltd.
