Shawnee Pottery produced a perfect King Corn Oval Platewith the darker yellow corn and lighter green shuck. Pile it high with baby ears of corn for your next BBQ, and you’ll have some vintage charm for sure!
Shawnee Pottery History: The corn style dinnerware line was originally started by Martha Holmes Breithaupt around 1940 but was in the white and green glaze. It was Robert Heckman who took the original design in 1946 using yellow and green glaze and named it King Corn. This line continued until 1954 and included sets like Polly Anne’s Popcorn set and the Town and Country snack set. After this the color changed again to a darker green and light yellow glaze and became the Queen Corn line. King Corn was phased out at that time.
The Rosemeade miniature cream and sugar set in corn pattern can add interest as well in summertime decor.
