1971 Catalogue - Pyrex in Five Patterns
Five major Pyrex patterns were listed in the 1971 Pyrex Ware dealer catalogue: Daisy, Early American, Friendship, Horizon Blue, Verde. Friendship was a new addition to the product line, and Early American was about to be discontinued. Almost every item available in these patterns is pictured.
In this catalogue, Daisy & Verde offer the same shapes & sizes as Early American & Horizon Blue, plus a 400-series bowl set in both patterns. A copy of their item lists is unavailable, but a 1972 list for Daisy provides the same information.
Although this image is from a 1972 catalogue, it is practically identical to the list provided in the 1971 catalogue. The same pieces were available in Verde too.
Because the page is from 1972, the capacity of the divided dish is stated as 1 Qt rather than 1½ Qt, a change that occurred around this time. Aside from its markings, the item itself was not altered.
Verde casseroles & bakeware, Daisy divided dish.
In Early American, there is also a 404, completing the 400-series set.
In Friendship, there is also a 3 Qt rectangular baking pan with an all-red pattern. It is unclear whether it was part of a set; it seems that a matching loaf pan and square pan do not exist.
Appearing before Friendship's debut, a special set with the same motif was offered during late 1970 & early 1971. It comprised one 475 casserole with an opal lid and under-plate. The casserole is decorated differently than an ordinary Friendship 475, and on a price list it was named "Penn Dutch", short for Pennsylvania Dutch presumably. Visit Replacements Ltd. for a photo of the under-plate.
The 475 at the bottom of the stack is mistakenly shown as part of the 480 set with a clear lid. It happens to be the densely decorated promotional version, called Pennsylvania Dutch, which should be paired with an opal lid and an under-plate. It pre-dates the regular Friendship product line.
Also part of Horizon Blue was a single solid blue 474 casserole with a patterned clear lid and a basket, offered during late 1970 or early 1971 in a special set.
Horizon Blue divided dish, refrigerator set, and Early American bowls & casserole.
