This is a rather unusual piece of Corning Ware. Produced between 1983 and 1985 this design was available in Chocolate, Lemon, Cranberry and Blueberry – presumably referencing the colours of the lid and the cuff round the waist of the kettle. This would obviously then be the Chocolate version (the lid and cuff are brown). Perhaps it was because the paint tended to peel that they stopped production (there’s a bit of wear to the lid – see photos), or maybe it was the rather ’80s shape that became a bit dated? But personally, as a massive fan of Corning Ware I love coming across a piece like this – one that I’ve never seen before, so is likely pretty rare! I also like how plain the kettle is, and that aside from that minor wear to the lid, this kettle is in wonderful condition!
