Sweet Wheat - Wheat Floral P-80-EP Percolator

Percolators are abound in the Corning Ware universe.  Things we never dared to dream existed, will suddenly appear out of nowhere.   This is what happened with this Wheat Floral (AKA: Harvest Wheat, Green Wheat, Wheat Sheaf, Avocado Wheat) P-80-EP Percolator. 

I feel very fortunate to have this in my collection.  There is an added bonus, in that it gives us some precedent for dating the pattern.   P-80-EPs were released in 1966 with Platinum Filigree gift line, and since the rest of the cookware pieces are of the P-series era, then spring of 1972 would be the pattern cut-off date.  

Other than those facts, nothing else much is known about this pattern; including the name, since no original boxes have been found as of yet.

Where is your Corning Ware??

  1. I have some coffee cups with a pattern that I can't find any information on. On one side is a red house with blue flowers on each side. On the other side is a red heart with white dots in it with blue flowers on each side. Are you familiar with this pattern? Thanks!

    1. That sounds like the Corelle pattern "Hometown". Though marked simply as "Corning" the mugs for this Corelle pattern are not made of yhr Corning Ware Pyroceram formula,but from Suprema.... Suprema is more translucent than Corning Ware, allowing light to pass through in a similar fashion to the Vitrelle glass that Corelle dinnerware is made of.
