Extra Photos: Clear Pyrex - Older than 1950 (Part 2)
Squat Teapot, probably 6 cup size, manufactured between 1922 and the early 1930s.
Iridescent Pyrex 193 oval casserole (1 Qt). Its surface treatment creates the illusion of colour and makes the glass more reflective than regular clear Pyrex.
Iridescent Pyrex debuted alongside White Pyrex in 1921, at a time when the Pyrex product line had grown substantially by doubling the variety of shapes & sizes as well as adding these new colours. Both Iridescent and White Pyrex remained available for two to three years.
Square 1½ Qt casserole, 053 with 653 lid. This type was manufactured from 1926 to 1938. Unlike other casserole shapes, square was offered in only one size.
Octagonal casseroles, 672 (1 Qt) & 673 (1½ Qt). Both lids are engraved with the same pattern. This shape first appeared in 1930.
Decagonal pie plate, 279 (9"). It was a companion of octagonal casseroles, and this example has a matching engraved design.
Deep oval 197 (1½ Qt) casserole. Both top and bottom are interchangeable with other pieces, so they carry more than one model number. The casserole is marked 197-297 since it could also use a 297 Victor cover. The lid is marked 193-197 because it also fits a 193 (1 Qt) casserole.
Deep oval 194 (2 Qt) casserole with 294 Victor cover and silver-plate stand. A regular 194 lid also fits this size.
Introduced in 1934, Electric Snack Servers from Chase Brass & Copper Co. were equipped with three 1 Qt Pyrex containers numbered 599. They are comparable to 504 bean pots, but with different handles, and a 599 seems taller and more narrow.
Dunbar Glass later produced the same pots for Chase using the "Ovenglas" brand name. Forman Bros. marketed a very similar appliance, but it uses regular 504 bean pots with their usual Pyrex lids.
Small aluminum percolator with Pyrex tops. The top attached to the lid is not marked with the brand name. Its model number is 953, and the one prominently embossed with "Pyrex" was called an 853, but these numbers do not appear on them. The 853 first appeared about 1928.
