This vintage, covered casserole set by Corningware features the Merry Mushroom design made for Sears.

Today’s vintage find is this pair of covered casseroles by Corning Ware in the Merry Mushroom pattern. I spotted these at a garage sale for $5 and snapped them up lightning fast! I have extensive experience collecting Pyrex and have always eyed the cute designs of vintage Corning Ware.

Corning Ware made this pattern for Sears from 1975 through 1977. The dishes by Corning Ware match a larger line of Merry Mushroom housewares, which include pottery canisters, tile trivets, cooking utensils, and more. You might find these particular casseroles for sale with different lids, but the lids that came with these two dishes are original. They are dimpled and made of clear glass. I found this article over at Corningware 411 to be helpful with information on this groovy mushroom design.

These particular pieces are highly sought after, as are other pieces in the Merry Mushroom line. I’ve gathered some groovy mushrooms here for you to browse. You can click on a picture or caption to shop for a piece. Enjoy!

How amazing is this set? Sears sure went all-in on the mushrooms! I am currently deciding what pattern of Corning Ware I’d like to collect, so I will keep these casseroles for a bit. I will let you know if I decide to part with them.

  1. Love the Merry Mushrooms. I had nearly the entire set when we bought a brand new house in W. WA in 1977, and made from scratch a 7′ wide roman shade for my “way too big north-facing 3-part window”. (why don’t contractors think like a woman?) Sadly I parted with most of my pieces when the phaze left, but I still have my squaty teapot, not the tall one you shared in pics. Those were happy days, learning to love a new area (which I sttill do–love it) and raising my family. Now some 45 years later, I pulled out my teapot and relived the time with your post. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you for sharing your story! The reason I love to write about vintage items is that I love to connect with other people and hear the stories they have to tell. It sounds like you had a groovy house! I know what you mean about the frustrations of a three-part north-facing window. I had one of those when I lived in the mountains and it was nearly impossible to find a shade of paint that looked good with the cool forest tones coming through the window. I’d love to see a picture of your handiwork!

  2. I love this pattern! In fact I just bought a set of four baking dishes with the dimpled lids.
