Pat Pending Brownie with Blue Interior
« on: November 20, 2019, 11:34:32 AM »
I was cleaning a Pat Pending Brownie to sell and I discovered it's blue interior.  I know reds and a few Glen Blues has the red interior.  Anyone know other colors with a blue inside?  A black lid is for comparison.

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

That blue hue would cause me to hesitate, but I would still sell it too.  Used to be one of my favorite kettle colors, but now I just donít feel it anymore[emoji22]

Learned an interesting piece of Weber history yesterday in regards to these blue interior colored kettles.  Thought it was worth sharing.   Here's a quote from @GrillGiant from a Facebook post yesterday. 

"Weber used several (like 6) different porcelain enamel shops before creating their own in house...if blue...porcelain was done outside of Weber."

This brings up another question.  Do we know what year Weber created their own porcelain division?

My Ď68 Aristocrat has the blue hue interior.  Most blue hue kettles Iíve seen date to 67-Ď68.  Iím guessing that this porcelain company had a contract for (X) amount of units, so that might explain why itís a Pat. Pending with blue hued interior.  Early, early Ď69[emoji848]?

I have a red 22" that has the blue interior porcelain. It has Pat # lid vent, plastic wheels w/ plastic treads and small lid and bowl tabs which I believe makes it a 73-74 by the WKC Age Guide.   It says in the Weber article posted by @michaelmilitello  that Weber would still use outside vendors after 1969 if they were overwhelmed with orders. I guess this red one was produced during one of those times.  It has the bluest interior of any kettle I have seen.
