Do you have a favorite vintage pie plate? I’ve been collecting the Royal China Jeannette Country Harvest Pie Plates for quite some time. So far I have Cherry, Pumpkin, Pecan, Strawberry, the elusive Peanut Butter, and Quiche Lorraine.
The Royal China Jeannette Country Harvest Plate Series
Other pie plates in the Country Harvest series, by Royal Jeanette, are Apple, Cheese Cake, Currier and Ives Brown Farm Scene, Currier and Ives Snowy Carriage Ride, Lemon Meringue, Armadillo, Blueberry, and Hershey’s Cocoa Cream.

I would love to have the Hershey’s Cocoa Cream because my husband loves chocolate pie. However, I do have Pecan Pie, which he also loves.
The Lemon Meringue is highly coveted because every mom wants to be like Amelia Bedelia and bake a lemon meringue pie when she messes up everything else (like forgeting to wash your kids’ uniforms and they have to wear them dirty or damp because you tried to wash and dry them at the last second). I wish I had the Lemon Meringue, but I haven’t come across one “in the wild” yet. Pyrexers use that term for finding a coveted dish at a thrift store or garage sale, rather than buying one online. Fortunately, I recently found a Quiche Lorraine Country Harvest pie plate in pristine condition.
There’s something special about a pie baked in a Royal Jeanette pie dish. When you take a slice of pie you can see the recipe underneath. Also, they must be fairly sturdy because they’re usually not chipped or cracked when found in a thrift store. If you have another favorite type of pie dish I’d love to hear from you!
The Value of Royal China Jeannette Country Harvest Pie Plates
WORTH: They are priceless to me, but Royal Jeanette pie plates sell for $10 to $25 on EBay.
HISTORY: The Country Harvest pattern by Royal China consisted of pie plates with different recipes on them. When Jeanette Glass took over the company it became The All American Pie Series. The plates were sold from 1980-1989.
APPEAL: I can’t hardly think of anything in the kitchen more appealing than a pie dish, other than a pie dish with a beautifully baked pie inside.
