What is it I like about Fire King Ovenware?

Recently I came across some Fire King Ovenware and decided to list it in my Etsy shop. As I looked at the ivory glass pieces, they evoked a memory. Was it an aunt who used these? Was it a woman, my mother’s best friend during the war and known to me as an “aunt”, who had it in her 1940’s deco china cabinet?  What was it about the vanilla caramel look that got me to thinking?  I’m sure the memory will appear when it’s ready, but I’m getting the smell of oven baked beans, ripe with bacon and onion and brown sugar. Or maybe it was Auntie Joyce’s Hawaiian Barbecued Chicken in an oblong oven dish of this color.
