Pattern Description: Roughly twice a year PYREX introduced promotional items. These items centered on events deemed important to women managing a home. New promotional patterns were generally unveiled for the spring/wedding/Mother’s Day season as well as for the winter holiday season. Promotional patterns were released on a limited number of pieces and were usually only available for a short time. It is important to know that not all promotional pieces have an assigned name from Corning and that many of the names represented are unofficial names made popular by the collector’s community. Even without official names large seasonal marketing campaigns were organized for the advertisement of the promotional patterns. “Beautiful, Useful, Always Welcome…Pyrex Gifts,” proclaimed a 1961 advertisement for the holiday season promotional items. The new Golden Pine Casserole retailed for $5.95. Included in this price was the two-quart Square Space-Saver Casserole, decorated clear lid and cradle

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.
