Bountiful Harvest

From its debut in 1941 as a premium in Proctor & Gamble’s Oxydol, Corn Ware was the best selling line made by Ohio’s Shawnee Pottery until the company closed in 1961. Representing the bountiful corn harvest of the American Midwest, the King Corn tea service rests on the rolling hills of the farmland. The Depression Era quilt pattern and fabrics are indicative of textiles used in homes when Corn Ware pottery graced many tables.
