Item Type: Promotional Cinderella Oval Covered Casserole Series 943
Values: Check below on Ebay for approximate prices
Sizes and ID#s: #943 (1.5 quart)
This is an interesting casserole that we’ve nicknamed “Midnight Bloom” because it has a blue-purple swirling flower pattern on top of a completely black lid. A very beautiful pattern, actually, with the trumpet looking flower in full bloom with it’s petals arched out. The lid is one of the few all black pieces (the other one we can think of is the Black Snowflake dishes) but the casserole itself is that same deep blue solid color.
This is a standard #943 1 1/2 quart casserole that apparently came with a carrying cradle-stand. I haven’t seen it shown with the cradle but have heard it had wooden handles instead of the usual white plastic, though the rest of the cradle is the familiar gold colored. Although it hasn’t been conclusively determined, I’m almost 100% certain this is a promotional item because it has the stand, is the right size, and I just can’t see them making a whole lot of items with this pattern on it!
This is a great item because it’s very different, and we’re definitely looking around to get a good price on one. Speaking of that, it probably will be easier to get an OK price on this one because the blue and black colors aren’t exactly the most popular ones.
