Pyrex ~ Terra ~ Woodland ~ Brown ~ Tan


Pyrex Profile - 
Terra circa 1964 

Terra is represented in dinnerware as well as ovenware & nesting bowls.  
It is different from most Pyrex patterns, with a matte textured exterior designed to mimic rustic earthenware.  
This pattern was discontinued about 1965.

The range of items was limited, and there are gaps in the sizes available.  Round nesting bowls include: 
401, 
403, 
404, 
and Cinderella casseroles include: 
471, 
472, 
474, 
 475.  
Bowls and casseroles
they were sold individually rather than in sets.  
Terra was the first Pyrex pattern to use opal lids on 470/480-series casseroles.               

Terra 472 Cinderella casserole.
Dinnerware shapes & sizes are: 
9" plates, 
8 oz bowls, 
13 oz mugs, 
12" round platter.  
Terra's unusual mugs have no handles because the decoration is achieved by rotating the item, and a handle would have interfered in the process.
                   
Terra mugs 13 oz.  
The shape of their base enables them to stack




Pyrex Compatibles - 
Woodland circa 1978

This Pyrex pattern was introduced in 1978 to complement the Corelle pattern launched that same year.  At its introduction, Woodland was already clad in the new full-color appearance that would be found on Butterfly Gold & Spring Blossom Green in 1979.  Multi-piece sets have alternating color schemes: chocolate brown and caramel brown.

Prior to 1978, it had been customary to equip certain casseroles with patterned opal Pyrex lids, but this was no longer the case, so Woodland casseroles always use plain clear Pyrex lids. 

Woodland 402 & 401 round nesting bowls. 

By the late 1970s the variety of shapes & sizes produced in opal Pyrex had been substantially pared back, so certain items were never made in Woodland: divided dishes, 664 (4 Qt) casseroles, baking pan sets.  Ovenware & nesting bowls in this pattern were discontinued about 1983, but Woodland Brown Corelle remained up to the end of 1985.

There are two different 474 casseroles, 
one does not belong to a set.  
Beginning in 1979 and through the early 1980s, 474 & 475 casseroles were packaged individually with the numbers 484 or 485 on the boxes.  
As part of a set, the 474 is light caramel brown, but if it was sold singly, its background is dark chocolate brown.  
The single 475 is the same color as usual.

At least two special sets combine Woodland with clear brown Fireside Pyrex.  
The 6-pc Bakeware Set includes: 
Woodland 403 bowl; 
Fireside 229 pie plate & four 463 custard cups.  
A Baker's Mix Set consists of: 
Woodland 402 & 403 bowls; 
Fireside 229 pie plate & 232 rectangular baking pan.

It is unfortunate that a popular reference book claims that Woodland is "from the 60s".  
That turns out to be false.  
Without a doubt, it was introduced in 1978 as an accessory for Corelle.

 Pyrex Compatibles - Butterfly Gold (1972)

Butterfly Gold Pyrex was introduced during spring 1972 to complement the Corelle pattern first launched in 1970.  A new version of this pattern arrived in 1979.  The original design on ovenware & nesting bowls is a large flower in the centre flanked on either side by leaves, butterflies and smaller flowers.  Multi-piece sets have alternating color schemes: white on gold, and gold on white.

The largest variety of pieces was produced with this original pattern, during a period when a lot of new shapes & sizes were introduced as Pyrex Compatibles.  All items with the original 1972 design were discontinued by 1979, if not earlier.

Initially, oval casseroles & divided dishes were equipped with patterned opal Pyrex lids.  By mid 1977 this was no longer the case, so oval casseroles manufactured during the later part of this pattern's lifespan came with clear Pyrex lids.  Because divided dishes were dropped in 1976, they never have clear lids.




401 & 402 with the new 1979 design in orange and yellow, and 401 with the original 1972 design in gold.

The pattern was updated in 1979, the new full-color version depicting a bouquet of smaller flowers on stems.  Multi-piece sets alternate between dark orange-gold and light yellow-gold with a white pattern.  From 1979 to 1981, its final year, the selection of Butterfly Gold was limited to nesting bowl sets and 470/480 casseroles.  Corelle in this pattern remained in production for many years afterwards.  

There are two different 474 casseroles, one does not belong to a set.  From 1979 to 1981, 474 & 475 casseroles were packaged individually with the numbers 484 or 485 on the boxes.  As part of a set, the 474 is light yellow-gold, but if it was sold singly, its background is dark orange-gold.  The single 475 is the same color as usual.

(Photo: 501 refrigerator dish.)

It is unfortunate that a popular reference book claims that Butterfly Gold Pyrex is from the "late 60s".  That turns out to be false.  There is no doubt that it was introduced in 1972 to complement the Corelle Livingware pattern.

* - Although cataloges and packaging state that a covered divided dish is a 963, neither the lid nor the dish is marked this way.  
The dish itself is an 063, but this number only appears on examples made during the mid 1970s.  
Its lid is a non-divided 945, the same lid that is meant for an 045 casserole.  Since about 1972, the capacity of an 063 had been stated as 1 Qt rather than 1½ Qt.

Markings on certain baking pans give the impression that they are numbered 813, 822 and 833, but it might be an error.  
Company literature states that they are meant to be 913, 922 and 933


Pyrex Profile - Autumn Harvest (1979)

Introduced during mid 1979, Autumn Harvest was available in ovenware & nesting bowls, plus a selection of Tabletop Ware & Store 'N' See Canisters that arrived in 1980 & 1981.  
Most Pyrex opal ware products were discontinued during 1986 and Autumn Harvest was among them.  
This pattern was designed by artist Richard Hora. 


Autumn Harvest 401 & 402 round nesting bowls, 471 casserole.  
The brown 045/945 oval casserole has a different name: "Wheat".

It was not part of the Pyrex Compatibles product line since it is not a Corelle pattern.  
Although Autumn Harvest resembles Corelle's Harvest Home (1981), they were not officially promoted as complementary products.  
But for a short time they were contemporary with each other, and with similar colors and motifs they seem to be a natural pairing.

The pattern is printed in ivory rather than white, and multi-piece sets alternate with orange and rust backgrounds.  
But contradicting the usual color scheme are round 400-series nesting bowls all in rust instead of alternating orange and rust.  
This bowl shape was available individually in open stock as well as in boxed sets of three or four.  
All four sizes sold singly were offered in rust only, while boxed sets included orange 401s & 403s, and rust 402s & 404s.  
Open-stock bowls were first offered in 1980 and remained available for at least five years.

There are two different 474 casseroles, one does not belong to a set.  
Beginning in 1980 and through the early 1980s, 474 and 475 casseroles were packaged individually with the numbers 484 or 485 on the boxes.  
As part of a set, the 474 is orange, but if it was sold singly, its background is rust.  
The single 475 is the same color as usual.

Wheat (1978)  
In 1978, prior to Autumn Harvest's introduction, an 045/945 oval casserole named "Wheat" appeared in a gift promotion set that also included a rectangular wooden trivet.  
Wheat's color scheme is tan on brown rather than ivory on rust or orange, but its pattern is identical to Autumn Harvest.  
An 045 with Autumn Harvest's usual color scheme does not exist, but there is an orange 043/943.

 Rust 474.  
Autumn Harvest 474s are normally orange.  
This one is rust because it was sold individually rather than part of a 480 set.

PYREX ~ Barbed Wire ~ Early American ~ Town and Country ~ Sunflower

Divided PYREX Dishes


Pyrex Profile - 
Town & Country 1963 

Town & Country debuted in 1963 and was discontinued about 1967.  
This pattern has two versions of nearly every piece.  
The original standard version is dominated by solid colors and varies a lot from set to set.  
Many pieces are unpatterned, but Cinderella casseroles and ovals do have printed patterns.
      
Sets in the alternative version of Town & Country are always decorated the same way.  
Each piece has a white background and a large pattern, either orange or brown, but not orange and brown.  
Jump to: Alternative Version.
           
Standard version, mainly solid-colored: 

Town & Country's standard product line includes an unpatterned solid-colored refrigerator dish set and 300-series bowl set, both sequenced brown, orange, yellow.  
The 440-series Cinderella set uses the same sequence of three solid-colored bowls, plus a white 444 with an orange & brown pattern.

                  Original solid-colored Town & Country 300-series bowl set.  
There is no 404.
            
Oval 043 & 045 casseroles and 063 divided dishes are white-bodied with a large orange & brown pattern.  
During 1966 & 1967 a selection of solid-colored oval casseroles were added to the product line.  The 063 divided dish, named "Light Yellow", and the 045 casserole, named "Orange", are the same colors as Town & Country's other solid yellow and solid orange sizes.  
The 043 casserole, named "Yellow", is a deeper golden yellow shade that does not match any other piece.
                
Town & Country "Orange" 045/945 oval casserole.
        
470/480-series casserole sets are printed with a small brown pattern that is only found on these sizes.  
Both sets use the same progression of background colors: orange, yellow, white.  
This means that there are two distinct 473s; the white one belongs to the 470 set and the orange one belongs to the 480 set.

- Although catalogues and packaging state that a covered divided dish is a 963, neither the lid nor the dish is marked this way.  
The dish itself is an 063, but this number only appears on examples made during the mid 1970s.  
Its lid is a plain clear divided 945.     
            
Alternative version, always white-bodied:  
It seems that Town & Country's alternative version was often marketed through catalogue companies rather than the usual retail store setting.  
Each piece is decorated with the same design, printed in a single color, either orange or brown.  
Oval casseroles and divided dishes with an orange and brown pattern belong to standard Town & Country instead.
                
Town & Country's alternative 300-series set, white with large orange or brown patterns.
       
In the alternative version, 300-series round bowls, 440-series Cinderella bowls and 500-series refrigerator dishes all have white backgrounds and alternate brown patterns with orange patterns.  The 480 casserole set is similarly decorated, but it seems a 470 set was never offered.  
Oval 043s and divided 063s in this version have a large brown pattern.  
The 045 casserole also seems to be absent.

A chip & dip set combined 
a 441 & 444 with a metal bracket.  
They're the same as the bowls in the 440-series set.  
Although a 404 does exist in this version, 
it was not part of a 400-series set.  
Instead it was sold singly as a casserole, 
with a 626 lid and a cradle.  
It has a brown pattern, so it does not fit the alternating color scheme of the other three bowls.
         
Additional items marketed alongside the alternative version include an 024 casserole with a large brown pattern, and Pyrex coffee carafes with a gold design, available in 8 cup and 10 cup sizes.

Its lid is a plain clear divided 945


Pyrex Profiles - 
Early American circa 1962 

Available until 1971, this pattern was introduced in stages, not presented all at once.  
It first appeared in early 1962 with 043 & 045 oval casseroles and an 063 divided dish.  
A chip & dip set and 440-series Cinderella bowls became available in 1963.  
The remainder of the product line arrived during 1965 & 1966.

440-series bowls and 470/480 casseroles alternate between gold on brown and brown on white.  Divided dishes exist in both color schemes, but 043s & 045s are always gold on brown.  
All 400-series bowls are brown on white.  
This is also true of 501s & 502s, but the 503 is the only size with a white pattern on brown.

A chip & dip set is comprised of a 441 & 444, both are gold on brown, so this 441 is unique.  
In 1965 a coffee set debuted with a 12 cup Pyrex carafe and six 1410 mugs.  
Although the eagle's pose is different than usual, this set was definitely advertised as Early American.

Lime bakeware was dropped during early 1956, 
and Flamingo bakeware was discontinued in 1957.
                      
 Although most Lime & Flamingo bakeware debuted in 1952, this size 
The 080 Flamingo 8 oz casserole with 980 lid did not appear until 1954.

Pyrex Compatibles -
Colonial Mist circa 1983

Colonial Mist Pyrex was introduced late 1983 to complement the Corelle pattern launched earlier that year.  It appeared at a time when the variety of opal Pyrex items had been significantly diminished, and the full range encompasses only nesting bowl sets and 470/480 casseroles.

No Tabletop Ware items were produced either.

Most Pyrex opal ware products were discontinued during 1986, and Colonial Mist was among them.

Multi-piece sets have alternating color schemes: white on blue, and blue on white.

White-bodied Colonial Mist items are not just plain opal glass printed with a pattern, there is an all-over white color applied to the exterior, giving a more solidly opaque appearance.

Contradicting the usual color scheme are round 400-series nesting bowls all in blue instead of alternating blue and white.

This bowl shape was available individually in open stock as well as in boxed sets of three or four.

All four sizes sold singly were offered in blue only, while boxed sets included blue 401s & 403s, and white 402s & 404s.

Open-stock bowls were available throughout the pattern's lifetime.

Nesting Bowls:
Sets:
300-Series Round – 401, 402, 403 – blue, white, blue

400-Series Round – 401, 402, 403, 404 – blue, white, blue, white

440-Series Cinderella – 441, 442, 443, 444 – white, blue, white, blue

Pyrex Profile - Yellow Bakeware (1956); Yellow Bowls (1957) 

Pale Yellow Bakeware:

These solid-colored pieces include: 
023 & 024 round casseroles, 
213 loaf pan, 
209 pie plate, 
221 cake pan, 
222 square pan, 
and 231 & 232 rectangular pans.  
The 024 casserole remained until early 1963, but the other shapes & sizes disappeared in the late 1950s.


Bright Yellow Bowls:
This shade of yellow is unique
It was available only on 300-series & 400-series nesting bowl sets.  
It does not match the yellow 404 of the regular multi-color set.  
The all-yellow 300-series set remained until early 1963, but the 400-series set disappeared in the late 1950s.

Pyrex Primary Color ~ RED

Here I have the ever popular Primary Colored Pyrex Dishes.
I only a few in red...
Two 404 Mixing / Nesting Bowls
Three 402 Mixing / Nesting Bowls
and
Two 501 Refrigerator Dishes aka Fridgies.
 
It's great how they nestle into one another, allowing for MORE storage ;)
Pyrex passionate folks tend be a bit "me, me, me" types over these primary mixing bowl sets in online auctions.

 
Be careful shopping for these in the wild they're even more aggressive.
Myself, I like to take my time and really look around for that just right price...


You know,  the one that makes your finger hover over the place bid button ;)
Uh huh, heart pounding at the same rate it does on the treadmill o.O
Then onto that confirm button.

 

Ah! those last few seconds before you know if you've won...
Oh yeah, working up that heart rate now.
But so worth it for that Pyrex prize :D
Wow, what a cardiovascular workout that was!


Yay, Pyrex won!
Time to celebrate...

 
All that effort deserves a Homemade reward like Apple Muffins or Brownies, Right? !
 
 
 
Mmm, maybe a tomato sami. Yum, just as good!


The voices in my head keep saying...
oh that's a great price, and you could really use that piece.
Who do they think they're kidding,  I couldn't possibly use all the Pyrex in my kitchen. They're already spilling out of the Pyrex hutch into other cabinets in my kitchen. However, I do plan to weed thru them, honest, I do!...
But they sit there looking so dagarn cute.

Pyrex Profile - Butterprint (1957)

Butterprint was introduced alongside Gooseberry in late 1957, and both patterns also represent the debut of 440-series Cinderella bowls.  
The standard version of Butterprint is turquoise, often with an alternating color scheme, and it remained in production until 1968.

Produced for shorter intervals, sets with special color schemes also exist, each piece having a white background instead of using alternating colors: 
Orange 440-series bowls,
