This includes scars, dings, oxidation, scratches, etc. Following World War II, Daitch Crystal Dairies enjoyed tremendous growth in the new supermarket format, emerging in the 1950s as a significant chain. In 1955, Daitch and its 34 stores merged with Shopwell Foods' chain of supermarkets.
The resulting supermarket chain underwent a period of significant expansion, adding new stores and acquiring the Diamond K chain, peaking in 1962 with 103 stores. With the bankruptcy of A&P in 2015, all that is left of the company are a few The Food Emporium stores in the Manhattan area run by Key Food Corp. The KW mark on the handles means Keiner-Williams Stamping Company, Richmond Hills, NY (and other locations), which was in business from before World War One to at least the late 1970's, making products for the dairy industry and the military.
