They were once a staple in households — immigrant and otherwise — across the United States. Now CorningWare is reviving its cornflower pattern, which means that you’ll be able to serve your favorite aloo and biryani dishes in these classic platters for years to come.
Along with Corelle plates, baking dishes and serving platters featuring the cornflower pattern could be seen on many South Asian American tables throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

The cornflower pattern was the very first released by CorningWare in the 1950s. It would become a staple design for the company for the next three decades. The original pieces from 60 years ago can now garner a pretty penny on sites like eBay.
CorningWare is now bringing back the classic cornflower blue design to commemorate its 60th anniversary. The new dishes are available on the company’s site and at retailers like Bed, Bath and Beyond.
But don’t get too excited about restocking your china cabinet immediately. Rumor has it that they are already selling out.
