The King Corn Oval Plate we offer came from the production line that began in 1946 – 1954 by Shawnee Pottery. It has the darker yellow corn with the lighter green shuck and is marked on the bottom: Shawnee Pottery #68. It is in great condition with only a few manufacturer flaws. No chips scratches or repairs. The darker hair line that appears on the bottom of the plate is from the manufacturer.
Replacements and other pricing guides value this plate up to $54.00.
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.
