We still use our vintage Corningware petite casserole pans in the “Blue Cornflower” design made from Pyroceram, and I continue to see a variety of Corning Ware products with this design for sale on Etsy and EBay.
In the process of researching the difference between Corningware, Pyrex and Corelle (see previous post) I noticed that World Kitchens — who now owns these product lines — reintroduced this design in the 3L casserole size.
From their website:
While my little casseroles dishes were all made in the U.S.A., Information on the World Kitchen website Question & Answer section notes that the new ones are now made in France.
Is this a way to gauge the age of a collection?
While smaller sizes of the Blue cornflower pans are easier to find, the larger ones — like the one listed on my Etsy store below — are less common.
I wonder if the older era casseroles in this Blue Cornflower design will still be collectible, especially as other sizes are re-introduced…
What do you think?
