Start going through your mom's old cookware because you might find yourself a very valuable item.

There are some collectors out there that are willing to pay a ridiculous amount of money for Corning Ware. You might not know Corning Ware by name, but if you saw it, you'd know exactly what I am referring to. These 1970's-style porcelain pots are making a comeback with some patterns going for up to $10,000 on eBay.

According to ThatsLife.com:

Some floral patterns are far more rare than others.

The Cornflower range, with a blue floral design, is the most common pattern but is still worth a lot of money.

More rare patterns, like Wildflower - made from 1977 to 1984 - and Floral Bouquet - made from 1971 to 1975 - can fetch up to $10,000 online.

That's a pretty decent chunk of change for cookware...but get this. If you have some of the entire collections, they could be worth up to $25,000 on eBay.

I'm going to have to tell my mom about this because she always made my favorite cheesy potatoes in a porcelain pot that looks just like some of these. She would lose her mind if she found out how much it could be worth.
