Homestead Brown

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!


  1. I love this piece. I don't think I've seen it in brown! Great buy for $2

  2. Great find for 2 dollars! I always find more brown pieces than the blue ones.

  3. This looks like the colour and pattern of my seventies' childhood. Lot's of woodland critters sitting on mushrooms. I can just see my mom making dinner while my sisters and I duke it out for the TV channel changer that's the size of a toaster.
