Silver; Pennsylvania, USA
Community Plate Silverware, 1921

A Pennsylvania utopian community of religious “perfectionists” founded the Community Plate Silverware Company in the 1890s, changing the name to Oneida in 1935. Although the company also produced military and medical equipment through both world wars, their specialty in silver led to their peak in the 1980s as America’s #1 silverware producer. This particular ladle was purchased by local chocolate lover Priscilla Zimmer of Moline, IL. She would use this ladle to serve hot chocolate out of a pan on the stove, and it has continued to be used this way in the family for four generations.
