My small Corn King collection. (Three is a collection, right?)
Aren't these fun?
Dinnerware shaped like an ear of corn
was made by the Shawnee Pottery of Zanesville, OH from 1941-1961.
The first corn-ware was white. (White Corn)
In 1946 the company changed to a more realistic yellow colored corn. (Corn King)
And in 1954 they switched again, to palest yellow with darker green husks. (Corn Queen)
Are you a corn collector, too?
I'd love to see a picture of your pieces.
Recently a lot of reproduction pieces (fakes) have been made,
so it's important to learn about the glaze, the backstamps, etc...
Visit Doug's Corner for lots of information on real vs fake.
