Interesting Facts about Pattern: - Sandalwood was one of the earliest patterns released. Pattern Description: Sandalwood was one of the earliest patterns released, but it did not resonate well with the consumer market so was discontinued after only a yearlong run. Initially it was produced only on a Cinderella Bowl set (440-5) and a Bake, Serve and Store set (470-5). A refrigerator set and a butter dish were released later. Sandalwood was produced as either a tan pattern on a white background or a white pattern on a tan background.

America’s Favorite Dish: Celebrating a Century of Pyrex commemorates the history of Pyrex brand housewares, developed by Corning Glass Works in 1915. Central to the story of Pyrex are women, traditionally the keepers of the home, who helped Corning designers and engineers develop the products to appeal to the burgeoning women’s consumer market. Corning Glass Works combined affordable products and attractive designs with strategic marketing to make Pyrex a mainstay in American homes. Pyrex advertisements, ephemera, and glassware from the combined collections of the Library and Museum will reveal the evolution of this modern American tradition.
