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.
