This tea pot was made by Shawnee Pottery of Zanesville, Ohio in their ever-popular "Corn King" pattern. The glaze colors distinguish it from the earlier pieces which were glazed to resemble white corn and the pieces made from '54 to '61 which had darker husks ("Corn Queen"). Corn King was made from 1946 to 1954.
This is the larger sized pot and measures 6 1/2" tall to the top of the lid finial and 4 3/4" tall without the lid. About 5" in diameter and a total of 9" from spout tip to edge of handle.
In very nice condition with no chips, breaks or repairs but does exhibit some of the manufacturing flaws and glitches that are commonly found on this mass-produced ware. There is a circular glaze craze on the inside, bottom which has darkened, probably from tea. This is not a crack but is strictly in the glaze. Also a tiny black firing dot on the lid finial and a glaze miss on the side of the handle. As mentioned, these idiosyncrasies are common and should not be considered as damage.
Marked "Shawnee, USA #75" on bottom.
