Shawnee Pottery was produced in Zanesville, Ohio from 1936 to 1961. They are best known for their figural cookie jars such as Mugsy, Puss n Boots, and Smiley as well as their King and Queen Corn line of dinnerware. They also produced planters, vases, tile, lamps, kitchen items, and many figural miniatures. It's similar in style to the other pottery of the time such as McCoy, Hull, and Red Wing. In fact Shawnee produced pieces for both Red Wing and Rumrill. One of their premier designers was Louise Elizabeth Bauer who had caught the attention of Addis E. Hull.
Other new items added recently include Leaded Stained Glass Windows, Blue Sapphire, Primitives, Jewelry, Hazel Atlas, Pyrex, Lamps, Advertising, Limoges, Bavaria and Lefton China. Although Mama’s Treasures specializes in kitchenalia, the owner believes in having
