A Vintage Glass Corn Bread Stick Pan for Thursday Show and Tell

 
Do you have one of these in your collection of vintage glassware? I have searched and failed to find out much information about it.
 
 
I do know it was made by the Wagner Company, a maker of very collectible cast iron ware. One search thought it was made during World War II, with the company turning it's production towards using its' metal for the war effort.
 
 
Another site, I found on the Internet, showed the original wrapper with a price of $1.00. Some websites on eBay, listed today's price as $95.00 .....
 
Mine is simply used for "display only"

    1. The information I found was very limited. No snow this week. Last week it was sleet and rain. But, it has been a very cold winter here, in Texas.

    1. Just so you know.....I didn't pay a high price for mine, just something I picked up at a yard sale.

  3. Very nice, I love the glass! I've never seen a glass cornbread pan before. I have one in cast iron and see many of that kind at the antique shops. I don't display mine, but have been thinking recently how I need to get out my vintage things and put them where I can see them and enjoy them.

    1. That is my thinking too! Why have something, if you tuck it away in a cabinet...

  6. i thought it was for holding cobs of corn on the dinner table, i guess i was wrong. dont think id chance putting it in the oven its too nice, i would be scared it would break.

    1. The dish could certainly be used for the table, but, the original wrapper had instructions on how to prepare the pan. It also had a corn bread recipe on it. The glass reminds me of a Pyrex pie plate.
