1972 Advertisement - Pyrex Compatibles
From the November 1972 issue of Family Circle magazine, this advertisement presents the Pyrex Compatibles product line, which had arrived during the spring of 1972. Spring Blossom Green is featured prominently and Snowflake Blue & Butterfly Gold are mentioned in the text.
Corelle had been available nation-wide since 1970, and Pyrex products in these patterns were conceived afterward to co-ordinate with the dinnerware. Verde, Daisy and Horizon Blue disappeared around this time, making room in the product line for the three new Pyrex patterns.
Pyrex items pictured are: 475 casserole, juice pitcher, Glas-Snap, 442 bowl, salt & pepper set, 472 casserole, 922 square pan, 913 loaf pan, butter dish.
The 1916 and 1971 dates in the text seem misleading. Clear Pyrex ovenware was definitely introduced in 1915, and without a doubt Corelle debuted in 1970. In an article about Corning's financial status, the New York Times reported on June 23 1970 that Corelle Livingware "was introduced last week in New England." By the autumn of that year, the product was in stores across the country.
