Corning Country Festival Glass Cannisters

Mr. SixBalloons and I hit up a great garage sale in downtown Vancouver this summer. It was held just outside a large apartment building on a busy urban street corner. The seller tweeted photos and updates before and during the sale, so it felt like a garage sale from the future. Haha.

Among her many awesome items, I had my eye on these Country Festival Bluebird glass cannisters. Have you ever seen anything like it? This pattern is normally seen on Corningware pieces, which I've begrudgingly passed on before.

This pattern is so cute and whimsical. I definitely don't want to add more to my already good-sized Corningware collection in the blue cornflower pattern, so I'm glad I was able to get these practical pieces instead.

The cork stoppers are also in good shape, which is nice. I am thinking of keeping rice in the tall one, and perhaps steel cut oats in the shorty. I paid $3 for the pair - the pricing at this sale was great!

I wonder if these were produced by Corning. There are no markings, but the print and the pieces themselves are beautiful and in great shape!


  1. I bet they were produced by Corning or Pyrex! Both would make glass items with their patterns on them. Great buy and I love the bright colors!

  2. Very cute! I found small juice glasses with that pattern manufacturer's mark though.

  3. I love that pattern! I've never seen it cheery!

  4. I recently saw this pattern on some vintage decals on Etsy. You may be interested in this listing since you already have the containers to match! :)

  5. My mom still has a few casserole dishes in that pattern. I think the jars are really cute on their own, even if you're not a Pyrex/Corning collector.

  6. I love the bright, eyecatching colours! Great find.

  7. Thanks everyone! Sorry to not reply earlier, I was without internet access for a week after posting this!!
