About Town With Corningware - In an Ivy League of It's Own

I remember this pattern quite well, it appeared in the early 90's (like '91 or '92), just about the time I was buying my first pieces of French White.  I keep a close eye out for this one when I am in a thrift store because it is the chosen pattern of a family friend and I am more than willing to help her with her collection.

Apparently, it was a favorite pattern with many people..... It was so popular, that Corning chose not only to adorn standard square pieces with the Callaway Ivy design.....

but French White pieces were festooned with ivy branches as well.

It's popularity has persisted to the extent that the"Coordinates" pieces as well as the Corelle dishes are still being produced by World Kitchen, LLC to this day, even though the original Corningware line has been discontinued.

Where is your Corningware??
