About Town With Corningware - Basket of Flowers For Mother Day?

Found at an antique store.  Which is funny to me, cause though Corningware is over 60 years old, this pattern is not.  It's the "Country Cornflower" pattern that was released in 1988.  Possibly retro, but not an antique, yet.

This was suppose to be the "new" face of the original Blue Cornflower design, which was retired the same year Country Cornflower was released.  Sadly, though the original Blue Cornflower was produced for over 30 years (1957 - 1988), Country Cornflower just didn't have the same appeal and was retired in 1993 after only 5 years.

Where is your Corningware??
