Vintage Corning Ware Experts - help please?

DuffyH | Jul 30, 2014 09:45 AM

Today I bought a piece of French White at Goodwill that is slightly different from an "identical" piece I own.

In Common:
marks on the bottom, identical on both dishes
F-5-B 1.6 LITER

smooth bases, indicating pyroceram

Weight, by about 3oz.

Color, the heavier one has an ivory/gray tinted, not as brilliant white as the lighter dish, a difference only noticeable when compared side by side

decor lines on the side, on the whiter, lighter dish, run ever-so-slightly farther onto the bottom of the dish

What can you tell me about these two baking dishes? Is the lighter, whiter dish older, from more pure clay? I'm clueless, really.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
