Identifiers / Alternate Names: Colorful orange and red bird motifs on white background form the basis. Some casserole lids are clear with the pattern, others solid white, but both have the birds in a circle. Some sets also include solid orange and red colored items with no bird pattern on them, though sometimes combined with lids that have the bird pattern. NOTE: Do not confuse the popular 1975 Corning Ware pattern known as Country Festival with Friendship! Though the pattern is setup similarly, the birds are Blue on that one and this is NOT the Friendship pattern. Also known as: Birdie, Friendship Bird, Pennsylvania Dutch Bird Scene, Red Rooster

This is a very large, shallow baking pan that many people call a lasagna pan because they use it just for that very purpose. The Friendship pattern is along the side - and we believe it is in red only, not orange and red as in the case with most of the other items in the line. The pan is a good sized 13 1/2 by 8 3/4 by 1 3/4 baker and is marked as 933. We haven’t yet seen an original box, but are giving the number as 933-45 for now.
We are still figuring out whether this came as part of a “baking set” as in some of the other patterns like Horizon Blue, so we’re going to wait until later for further discussion. If that is the case, there would also be an 8×8 inch brownie pan baker and a 1.5 qt loaf pan. However, we haven’t seen these items yet - they are also not listed in the catalogue page that Mackem 54 had scanned in (actually this Lasagna pan was not listed either). If you have more info on the baking items in Friendship pattern we’d like to hear about it.
