1968 Leaflet - Pyrex Ware ... Preparing Cooking Serving Storing (Part Two)
In the spring of 1968, consumers who were interested in Corning Ware, Pyrex or Centura could write to the company and obtain leaflets illustrating either of these product lines. A replacement parts catalogue also could be requested. This leaflet is devoted to Pyrex Ware and presents all available opal ware patterns along with Flameware and clear Pyrex ovenware.

By this time, the Flameware brand name had been dropped and the product line was called "Pyrex Range Top Ware" instead. Only one type of vacuum coffee maker was still available; there had been four to choose from in the early 1960s.
Hot beverage carafes and a cream & sugar set decorated with a platinum band. They were introduced in 1966, and the handles and lids on most of them have a "walnut woodtone inlay". The plastic serving tray also has a woodgrain effect.
Rimmed nesting bowls, mixer bowls, round casseroles.
The small 343 straight-sided mixer bowl debuted in 1966, and the 344 soon followed. Their deep shape was designed to minimize spattering when used with a portable electric hand mixer. They are not intended for stand mixers.
Both sizes transitioned to opal Pyrex in 1971, with a brown & orange abstract decoration that has no official pattern name. Company literature from 1971 describes them simply as: "Decorated Straight-Sided Mixer Bowl" and their original packaging provides no further details. They could be purchased singly or in a two-piece set.
Pie plates, loaf pans, cake pans, utility dishes, measuring cups and custard cups. A 465 Deep Pie Dish is the largest type of custard cup.
Gold-decorated cruets, salt & pepper sets, Cracker Barrel & Cookie Jar, plus avocado Drinkups.
Seasonal gift promotion sets are: Golden Rose 045, Saxony 475, Americana Chip 'n' Dip 401 & 404, Golden Wreath 043, Blue Ivy divided dish, 12 cup carafe & electric warmer.
Advertisements show that Saxony and Golden Wreath first appeared in the autumn of 1967, this could be true of Golden Rose, Blue Ivy, and Americana Chip 'n' Dip as well. The latter was also called Earthtones on its original box.
See enlargement of the four casseroles on lower left, opens in a new window. See Blue Ivy 063 in Non-Standard Patterns. Visit the Corning Museum of Glass for photos of Golden Rose 045 and Saxony 475.
