I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk down Corning Ware memory lane. To date I have been unable to find pictures of the following Corning Ware patterns:
Blue Violet - 1997-1998*
French Bleu - ???
Orchid Rose - 1992-1994
*This is a photo of Corelle’s Country Violets pattern, but this pattern seems to have been introduced in 1986. I’m not convinced that Country Violets is the same pattern as Blue Violet, which my research shows was produced from 1997-1998.
If you happen to be the proud owner of any Corning Ware pieces decorated in any of these exceedingly rare designs, please email me with photos. Likewise if you know the answer to the Blue Violet / Country Violets controversy. I’ll be forever grateful!
The Corning Ware discussion got so voluminous that we turned it into a blog! Lots of fascinating details and tidbits! Click here.
