It was the page regarding the 3 editions of the Floral Bouquet pattern. After specifying the 1969 Limited Edition Gift Line version (1st edition) with the white ceramic knob lids (which I covered here) there is a mention of Avocado and Butterscotch with matching colored ceramic knob lids that were available the same year. I am fully aware of the butterscotch color, for it is the "Harvest" pattern (which I also covered). It was that reference to this mysterious "Avocado" with matching ceramic knobs that started my obsession... one that has consumed me for 2 years now.
I have hunted and searched for it, rummaged, quested, and scoured the internet in pursuit of it along with every other word in the thesaurus; all in, what I began to think, was nothing more than a wild goose-chase. Well, sometimes perseverance is rewarded.
It all boils down to the fact that I made a mistake. An honest one, but still a mistake. I made an assumption and, consequently, spent my time searching for the wrong thing.
On the web site, these Avocado pieces were mentioned right along with the Harvest pattern (Butterscotch), So I began searching for traditional Corning Ware pieces. That was some very narrow minded conjecture on my part. Come to find out, what I now believe Corelle Corner's information is actually making reference to isn't the traditional square shape used for Harvest and Floral Bouquet. Nope. The Avocado pieces were Round!
Behold! The Avocado Buffet Server with Avocado Ceramic Knob!
Where is your CorningWare??
