Place of Origin

Maker Cupples Co.

Maker Details Cupples Company was begun in 1851 by 19-year old Samuel Cupples, who sold wooden buckets, churns and similar items that were manufactured in Ohio. By 1855, the company had twice moved to larger quarters from its original location at No. 9 Locust Street and had expanded territories and product lines. Asa Wallace joined the company that year, and two brothers, Robert and Harry Brookings, became partners in 1874. The company was first incorporated in 1882 as Samuel Cupples Woodenware Company. It became a distribution giant that dominated its field.
