There are actually a couple of different types. Find a replacement when the threads wear out can be a chore.
Nope. You aren’t rich–at least not from finding a piece of DescoWare. What you do have is an amazing high quality piece of cookware.
Some pieces do auction for a few hundred dollars. The highest result that I ever saw was about $250. As with any collectible, there are rules for higher values.
This is the stuff that originally hooked me. I inherited an oval roaster from my great-grandmother. In our family it was known as the magic yellow pot. We swore that she could cook bricks of salt in that pot and it would make a lovely dinner. My aunts were very distressed when she picked this item to go to me since Gram was skipping a generation, but… I was born on her birthday. All the Aunties know that this has been very loved in my home– and daughter Katie will also cherish this item long after I’m gone. What great stuff… 5 generations of service to our family.
