Finding the Value of Vintage CorningWare?

January 12, 2020

I have a 5 qt A-5-B, CorningWare dish. It has the lid and there are no chips. It is from a set of 3 with the spice sayings on front: L' Echolote, La Marjolaine, and Le Romarin. I have only one of these. What is this dish worth?

This is a popular and plentiful pattern!!

The 5 qt size sell regularly from 12.99 to 15.99 dollars on eBay (some with seller paid shipping, some with buyer paid shipping).

This selling price is very consistent and is a SOLD value, not an asking price.

I know there has been a whole bunch of misinformation floating about that these are worth thousands. One story had them pegged in the 7,000 dollar range.

I did a spit take with my coffee on that one. It is (sadly) TOTALLY FALSE!

High sold values on eBay are usually a scam or money laundering or, as a reseller friend just suggested to me over the weekend, that there are dishonest writers/reporters out there who are creating these high sale auctions for common pieces so they can write click-bait articles for the web. That sounds very possible since clicking is money.

Ignore the mis-information and take this as fact. I have been reselling for most of my life and this is the true value of these pieces in today's resell market!

After a person wrote a blog post about CorningWare being worth $7000 or more we have seen tons of posts here on the site asking about how much their item is worth. In reality nobody will pay $7000 for this item because there are still so many of them around. The real asking price for items like this range from 9 to 35 dollars. Average being around 15 dollars.

Nice! They sell regularly from 7-19 dollars depending on if you have the glass lids and/or storage lids.

There is a lot of misinformation floating about that these are worth thousands. Sadly that is false. High sold values on eBay are usually a scam or money laundering.

There are some blog sites that post these are worth around $7000 or more for each one. This is a bogus price and it is not even possible. If you check listing online the dishes are selling from $8.99 to $35.

I believe it has now become a game with some sellers but mostly just people who are harboring a 'dream' and have all these listings with ridiculous asking prices.

Here is a link to the same type of dishes that you have so you can see what everyone is talking about. Just do not believe this will happen unless it is a scam or ???

The lovely abundance pattern!

Sold prices on eBay, not asking, are 4.99 to 10.00 each. Some are seller paid shipping, some buyer.

There is some major misinformation on the internet at the moment that Corning pieces are worth thousands. Sales people are seeing on line are fraud going on. Either money laundering, schill bidding, or other after stuff. Some click bait writers are perpetrating these prices as real and getting people all fussed up.

Sad! The values I am sharing are the real prices/values.

Thanks for asking!!

I think everyone right now is interested in finding out if their CorningWare dish can bring in a very high value. I know online there are some blog posts stating that some of these dishes have sold for up to $7000. This is a bit high for the dish and normally the sell for around $16 to $35 depending on the size and the design.

Pghgirl has excellent information but sometimes it helps to see the actual items for sale or sold.
Here is a link to the same type of dish that you have presently listed on eBay. You would have to check for the exact size you have. If you see a dish like you have you can place a watch on the listing to see if it sells.

Here is a link to the actual sold items on eBay which can in some instances mean current value.

These items do sell at decent prices but may not be a fast seller.

I have a Corningware P-1 3/4-B dish that was given to me. I looked up the stamp to age it and it is from around 1966. I was just wanting to see about pricing on this and what I could maybe sell it for.

It has a little wear and tear on the bottom. I looked online and most of the prices on there seemed unrealistic.

Hi! Great Corning pieces. Classics. They are easy to sell on eBay, if you want to start small, they are good and consistent sellers at 5-25 dollars, each.

Be sure to wrap these very carefully with bubble wrap, then in box 1, put that box in a bigger box with at least 2 inches all around. In that space be sure to use extra bubble wrap or foam peanuts. Double boxing like this is the best way to prevent damage in transit.

Weigh the box and put the measurements in eBay so the shipping is accurate. This is very important to do. Never let eBay calculate shipping for you. It is always wrong.

Please be aware there are false click bait stories on the internet saying these pieces are worth thousands of dollars. That is totally false. The sold auctions that show these high values are either money laundering or schill bidding by the click bait writers. Please don't get mixed up in those lies and fake ads.

The true sold values are those under $25. I feel terrible if this is not what you wanted to hear.

Like I said, if you have never sold on eBay before, it is good to start with small sales like with these items to get experience and feedbacks. Post back how it goes.

The most profitable thing you can do with these is to travel back in time to 2005, back to the time when a person actually could make money off selling high quality items on eBay before the market was oversaturated.

I'm joking of course.

These are great dishes and SOMEBODY wants them. Sure, someone can find one at Goodwill for a small amount but that's a crapshoot. Someone can also get them on Ebay but pay $10 shipping and run all sorts of risks

The best thing to do is simply advertise on Craigslist or join facebook buy sell trade groups in the community and wait for whoever wants them. $10 to $20 a piece is what I would start with.

I recently lost my mom and have been emptying out her house, where I grew up and she lived for almost 70 years. I discovered a closet in the basement filled with boxes of unopened CorningWare, Corelle, Pyre, and Lady Victoria crystal. She always bought in bulk and couldn'tpass up a bargain, thinking that someone might need or want it sometime.

My siblings and I want to sell these items, but we are unsure of their value. I've searched online and can't find any new vintage patterns for sale, only used items. How can we determine the value of these items for sale? Any advice on how to determine their value and/or sell would be appreciated.


Thanks!

What is highest value in demand pattern as far as CorningWare goes?


Answers

Best Answer

Highest values would be one of the lesser known patterns like Calloway Ivy or Lancaster or Country Festival or Blue Dusk.

A 45-piece set of the Calloway Ivy just sold on eBay for $259.99 (but the SELLER paid shipping, which drops his/her profits down a lot).

A full set of Country Festival just sold in the high $200 range (it was still in the original box).

A Lancaster Coffee pot just sold in the high $100 range.

Blue Dusk (which I would love to find) sells in the $30-$40 range for most sizes of casseroles.

You are going to see and hear a ton of mis-information out there about Corning selling for thousands and thousands of dollars. You will even see SOLD listings on eBay for this.

This is all NOT REAL....what I mean is it is either money laundering, shill bidding, or what was just suggested to me over the weekend is a bunch of dishonest writers doing this so they can write click bait articles for the web.

If something is too good to be true (like that a Cornflower Blue casserole is worth thousands of dollars) then it is NOT TRUE.

If it was true, I would be a thousandaire, because I am a reseller who has had a set of the Blue Cornflower for a whole bunch of years and if it was worth that much, I would get mine on eBay in a heartbeat.

I hope this helps!! Thanks for asking! Please share the correct info with your friends and stop the spread of the click-bait garbage!

This is a very popular and quite common pattern.

The 1-2 quart size sell regularly from 7-19 dollars depending on if you have the glass lids and/or storage lids. The 5 qt size sell regularly from 12.99 to 15.99.

This are true SOLD prices, not asking prices and not the crazy high values you are seeing at the moment on eBay.

As I have said to several other posts on this site in the last 5 days or so, there has been a whole bunch of misinformation floating about that these are worth thousands. One story had them pegged in the 7,000 dollar range.

I did a spit take with my coffee on that one. It is (sadly) TOTALLY FALSE or I would be a wealthy gal!

To tell you the truth a blog posted by a person has started a wave of questions about the real value of CorningWare. This person claimed that a person sold their set or just one piece on eBay for $7000. This isn't real and should not be considered a realistic price for the set of dishes you have. The normal selling price is between 9 to 35 dollars each.
