While we’ve had plenty of Corning Ware dishes on Mint lately (I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been!), most of the dishes have been from the Cornflower Blue and Spice of Life range. It’s been absolutely ages since we’ve had one of the more colourful patterns on Mint, so I was delighted to come across this Wild Flower poppy pattern the other day! The design was first introduced in 1978 (the year that I was born!), and continued to be produced through to 1984, making this dish a minimum of 30 years old. I have to say it’s ageing a lot better than me – bar some fine scratches on the underside, there are practically no signs of wear & tear. Whoever owned it before clearly did a great job of looking after it!
Dimensions: 18cm wide x 22.5cm long (incl. handles) x 12cm tall (with lid on)
