The Oneida Community was a perfectionist religious communal society founded by John H. Noyes in 1848 in Oneida, New York. There was day care for children, "complex" marriages, male sexual continence, and they sold preserves, animals traps and more. There were 306 members by 1878. The community dissolved in 1878, and eventually became the silverware company Oneida Limited. This bottle incites my curiosity, so I'm reading a book about this commune to learn more....
