How to know if your vintage CorningWare is worth some serious money

At least one vintage CorningWare dish has sold for more than $10,000 on eBay, and the internet is taking note.

Several articles have popped up in the past week talking about the sale, and prospective sales.

In case you need a refresher, here’s what CorningWare looks like:

Look familiar?

Let’s talk numbers.

Check out this casserole dish, which went for about $17,504 in Australian currency -- which is around $12,000 in U.S. dollars.

And this pair is currently listed for about $16,000.


As is the case with all collector’s items, it’s hard to know what your personal belongings could truly sell for. Despite how valuable or invaluable something might be, our stuff is really only worth what someone will pay for it at any given time.

If you go to eBay and search the word “CorningWare,” you’ll find most listings range from $5 to $40, depending on the set itself, how many pieces are included and what condition they’re in.

This item was listed earlier this week on eBay for $4,900 -- but it doesn’t appear that it got any bids. The owner named it “Vintage and Rare La Marjolaine CorningWare” and described it as “GREAT CONDITION: Obviously Used, but only for special family events.”


Here’s another set that’s for sale for $7,200. It appears to be the dimple lids, in this case, that make this set valuable -- or valuable if it sells for that price, that is.

CorningWare, which was introduced in the late ‘50s, was quite common and popular in the 1970s and 1980s. The porcelain pots are often floral in design.

Glass expert Dean Six told an Australian website that a piece that recently sold for $7,000 was a 1970s product that fizzled.


The rarer the better when it comes to value, it seems.

“The Cornflower range, with a blue floral design, is the most common pattern but is still worth a lot of money,” the Australian site said. “More rare patterns, like Wildflower - made from 1977 to 1984 - and Floral Bouquet - made from 1971 to 1975 - can fetch up to $10,000 online.”

Again, that’s only if someone will pony up.

So, how are you feeling? If you have a piece you suspect could be valuable, it couldn’t hurt to swing by an antique dealer and investigate.

Now we’ll leave you with this question:

Floral Bouquet Bakeware by CorningWare

Floral Bouquet by CorningWare

The flower power motif of the sixties is rendered in Floral Bouquet, featuring outlined flowers in blue, gold floral accents and green leaves. Microwave, oven and dishwasher safe, this retired collection was a stand alone CorningWare pattern that did not coordinate with matching dinnerware.

The CorningWare Floral Bouquet pattern has been discontinued. If you need replacement or additional pieces for your collection of CorningWare Floral Bouquet bakeware, monitor this page on a weekly basis for new listings.

Please Note: Not all CorningWare is safe for use in the microwave. While the majority of CorningWare bakeware is microwave-safe, older CorningWare dinnerware patterns and patterns with gold or platinum decorations should not be used in a microwave because microwaves can not pass through metal. If in doubt, use this simple test: Is this Utensil Safe for the Microwave?

In 1969, Corning released the Floral Bouquet Limited Edition Gift line.

Due to it's popularity, Corning decided to continue producing the pattern in 1970, though in a slightly modified form.  This, to us collectors, has become known as 2nd edition Floral Bouquet...  Though at the time, it was still called "Floral Bouquet", just like the Limited Gift line had been.

The modifications were fairly simple... First, the special ceramic knob lids used on the Gift line were replaced with the standard clear glass Pyrex lids.  Secondly, the pattern was altered by using a solid yellow background instead of a linen looking texture and the flowers were accented with blue and avocado colors to make them stand out more. Thirdly, the line was expanded slightly by the addition of a 10 inch skillet and a 1 quart saucepan.

This version of Floral Bouquet would remain in production until mid 1971, when the 3rd edition of Floral Bouquet would be released.

Though there is a percolator to match this set, it wasn't released until 1971.  The percolators for Floral Bouquet (2nd & 3rd editions) are exactly the same.  All 9/10 cup percolators have a significant amount of yellow in the background of the front medallion (for the pattern does not wrap around like Renaissance does).  These include the P-149 stove top and the P-80-EP & E-1210 Electromatics.



All the 6 cup percolators, however, have a small single patch of yellow between 2 of the flowers.  As far as I can tell, there were only two 6 cup models produced.  The P-146 Stove Top and the P-6-EP electromatic.



No matter when the percolator was produced (1971-1974) it is the size, not the edition, that determined the pattern.  For this reason, I usually leave them out of the "Editions" list... Aside from the Original Gift line P-119, they all look the same.

Amy will be a really perfect subject for all those love games that we love to entertain ourselves with. I believe that I support her in the right spirit, keeping her mother in the dark, who herself is sufficiently bogged down in these games to reproach others for them.
