About Shawnee Pottery
The Shawnee Pottery Company, started production in the former American Encaustic Tile Company Plant building in 1937. Because of increasing hostility with the advent of the World War 11 and encouragement for American's to buy American made products, American retailers were forced to look for American sources for their wares. Shawnee's original designs for their products were supplied by the S.S. Kresge Company, F.W. Woolworth, and the McCrory stores.

These stores purchased a promised amount of each item made for them. Within a very short time other companies such as Sears, joined the ranks of Shawnee buyers. In April of 1938 George RumRill moved his production from the Red Wing Pottery Company to the Shawnee plant. With all the new changes in the company Shawnee turned an eye to designing its own products. In the next few years they hired a few good designers. Some of the early designers were Rudy Ganz (who had worked for the Frankoma Pottery Company), and Louise Bauer (who later went to work for the Hull Pottery Company).

In 1942 Ed Hazel joined the design team. From 1937 Shawnee manufactured primarily low production cost pottery products that were simple in design such as planters, vases and jardinieres. They also produced dinnerware and kitchenware for jobbers such as Sears Roebuck, as well as lamp parts (bases for other manufacturers). Special Premium items were produced as well , such as cookie jars, teapots, and mixing bowls. These items were sold to companies for premiums, with there largest retailer of these products being Proctor and Gamble.

Like most companies during the war, Shawnee received war contracts and produced many items for the aviation and automotive industries. During these years the Shawnee Pottery Company thrived.After the end of the war increasing competition from overseas markets caused the company to suffer a severe production losses by 1954. The same year Shawnee hired John F. Bonistall as the vice president and general manager of the company. Bonistall turned his eye to designing pieces that could be produced reasonably and would appeal to the American public.

His designs were colorful and durable and less garish than the overseas products being marketed. Americans found these products to be appealing and Shawnee again found themselves one of the largest and most successful pottery manufacturers in the country. In 1961 due to increased cost of production of quality merchandise and increasing competition from overseas markets, the Shawnee Pottery Company was forced to close its doors.

The best (mint condition) examples with elaborate paintwork can sell for over $200 on auction sites, whereas others in good condition and simpler colour schemes can fetch around $40 - $60.
