Pink?..Peach?..Salmon? Le Creuset

I am new..(like 5 minutes ago) was surfing looking for Le Creuset #23. I am not sure what to call the color. It is a 3 piece set, that the name for it escapes me, but had found it on line a ways back.
It's in great shape, and am considering selling them, but can't even get the color correct. I am going to try to send some pics, but for some reason they seem to come out rather large. If they do, I apologize. I am working on that. Any info any may have would be appreciated.

  1. It doesn't look like powder pink (Japan) but sort of looks like the peach. I know that several years ago, LC came out with dusty rose. I'm not sure if it is that color, though. Good luck with this...I'll keep an eye on this thread as I'm curious what color it is!

          Yes, the last time I saw that gray "glissemail" coating on brand-new Le Creuset skillets was at least 15 years ago, and even then I believe they were old stock that was being sold off at bargain prices. The newer pieces also have enameled bottoms, unlike those in the photos.

      2. thank you all for the info to decide on..local auction house or ebay..
        this is a pretty cool sight, maybe I can learn to cook something yummy :)

        1. The pots are more than 15 yrs old. I purchased them in 1987, i would be interested in purchasing If you still have them. The color is called "peach".
