I was excited to come across this 2.5l 475-B casserole dish (with it's lid!) at an estate auction today. I haven't even had a chance to clean it up yet! I still don't know if I like Homestead or not, but I wanted this piece because it was the first time that I had found a Homestead piece in brown. All of the Homestead pieces that I seem to come across are the blue ones. I don't know when the Homestead pattern was produced, but going by the brown and blue color scheme, I would make a guess that it was a 1980s pattern. I remember when I was little in the 1980s our house was decorated in brown and blue. Is the brown color more unusual than the blue, or do I just happen to find only the blue? Anyway, it has a small rust stain on it that I hope I can get out, but if not, it will be a great everyday piece for my investment of $2!
