Vintage Corningware Patterns
Vintage Corningware Patterns are original glassware designs used for the CorningWare range of kitchenware.

History & Description

CorningWare was a brand name of cookware that was manufactured by the American-based Corning Glass Works.

Introduced in 1958, the product was made of a revolutionary pyroceramic glass that was able to withstand a loss of temperature of up to 450°. The product’s versatility ensured that it became extremely popular with homeowners as it could be used directly in an oven or on a stove top.

CorningWare products have been in continual production since 1957 and it is estimated that over 750 million pieces have been manufactured. Products include teapots, gravy boats, casserole dishes, frying pans, pie plates, ramekins, sauce pans, loaf pans, browning skillets, coffee pots, roasters and grab it bowls.

The brand was acquired by World Kitchen LLC in the late-1990s.
