The PYREX brand is so well known and greatly loved in kitchens across the world that it is now a word to describe this type of glassware in general rather than simply the brand it is manufactured under. There are a couple stories circulating as to how this Corning Ware brand, PYREX got its start. The first story is that Jesse Littleton worked for Corning Ware and made his wife a casserole dish from a cut-down Nonex battery jar; Nonex was developed by Eugene Sullivan in 1908 and is a low-expansive glass that reduces the chance of breakage in shock-resistant lanterns and battery jars. The second story is that Jesse worked for the railroads and his wife worked for Corning Ware and it was she that asked him to bring home something made from the glass of the railroad signal lanterns as she knew how strong they were and wanted to try baking with that glass. Either story leads to Corning Ware taking on productions, after removing the lead from the Nonex, and becoming a household name. In 1998 Corning Ware was sold to World Kitchens but retained their PYREX brand and is still manufactured today under that name. The PYREX brand began being manufactured in the USA in 1915 and continues to be made in the USA today – what an awesome American company.

Three vintage PYREX mixing bowls from the 1970s; one large, one medium, and one small. Not sure if these came as an original set but they have since found their way to making a great threesome set! The large bowl is a bright apple red, the medium bowl is a deep avocado green, and the small bowl is a pale melon yellow. The overall condition of these bowls is okay as the red has a good deal of scratches and the green and yellow have a few scuffs. All three are free of any chips or cracks and still make excellent mixing bowls. Please see pictures for condition – keep in mind that the red bowl is much more scratched than what shows up in the pictures.
