Maker

Maker Details The Oval Wood Dish Corporation was founded in 1883 in Delta, Ohio. The company moved instead to Tupper Lake, New York in 1918. Although the firm struggled during the Depression, the company rebounded with the introduction of the “Ritespoon” and “Ritefork” in 1937. Until it went out of business in 1964, Oval Wood Dish manufactured clothespins, bowling pins, tongue depressors, furniture pieces, commercial veneer, hardwood flooring, ice cream and popsicle sticks, and, well into the 1960s, the small, flat spoons.
