- Corning Blue Corn Flower Casserole, lead free! (non-detect for lead).
- Tested with an XRF instrument
- Year of manufacture unknown
Many of the vintage Corningware casserole dishes like this (specifically the ones with this blue cornflower pattern) that I have tested have been negative for Lead in the exterior painted decorative (blue) markings, but NOT all of them. It seems to depend on the year of manufacture, yet these are not marked with the manufacture so there is no way (as far as I can tell) for the average consumer to know which are from which years. HOWEVER all of the similar Corning casserole dishes (the white glass dishes with the multi-colored decorations in various patterns) have been positive for HIGH LEVELS of Lead in the exterior decorative painted markings!
