Shawnee Pottery made many designs of Vases, Planters, and other items for the kitchen and dining, but the Corn King design was a very big seller, and is desirable for collectors. Corn King by Shawnee began in 1946 with White Corn Kernels. These were made for Proctor and Gamble Company, which used them as a promotional giveaway in products made by Proctor and Gamble (Laundry Detergents). In 1947 Shawnee changed the color of the kernels to yellow, with green shuck, to give a more realistic look to the Corn King line. Many items for kitchen and home use were made. The change made the Corn King line even more successful. Many Shawnee Pottery items are unmarked or were given a stick on label that looked like a crown, Ovenproof Corn King, Shawnee. As the items were used, the label would come off or be taken off by the consumer before use. Later on, Shawnee began an incised Shawnee U.S.A. with the item # on the bottom. Shawnee produced Corn King in the yellow with green shucks until 1953. In 1954 the corn kernels changed color again, to a very light pale yellow with Dark Green Shucks. This new line was named Corn Queen. Corn Queen was not as successful as the vibrant good enough to eat Corn King. Corn King is made in California, U.S.A.
