About 1848 John Humphrey Noyes and a little association of men began an experiment in communal living at Oneida Creek. In 1877 the Oneida Community began the manufacture of tableware. The production of iron spoons called "Lily" and "Oval" manufactured by the Wallingford branch was the direct ancestor of the Community Plate line. In 1880 the activity was incorporated in New York as Oneida Community Limited and the factory was moved to Niagara Falls.
In 1935 the company changed its name to Oneida Ltd continuing the production of silverplate and sterling silverware in Sherrill, Oneida and Niagara Falls. Their La Rose pattern was introduced in 1938 but shortly after production halted as America joined WWII, the company added army trucks, aircraft survival kits, and even jet engine parts to its manufacturing repertoire.
This set of flatware for four is in admittedly poor condition with most of the silver plating worn off over time, but is still very useable. Includes four tea spoons, four table spoons, and six dinner forks

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
