1920 Leaflet - Pyrex ... For Gifts
Dated February 1920, this small leaflet for consumers presents the eleven piece Pyrex Gift Set. This assortment had arrived on store shelves just before Christmas 1916, and it was the first boxed set of Pyrex ever to be offered.
The items were specially packaged in a decorative box, and most merchants priced the set at $5.00. If purchased individually, the same pieces would have cost $5.10 in 1916. Within a few years, the gift set price had risen to $6.00, but this time the cost of the individual items totalled $5.90. Sets with engraved decoration also could be obtained for $12.00.

Gift sets were promoted most frequently at Christmas, but they occasionally arose during the spring for bridal gifts too. Boxed assortments became a popular format for selling clear Pyrex, and other types of sets with a variety of combinations would appear up to the early 1950s.
Centre pages. The casserole has a lid, so there are twelve individual pieces of Pyrex in the box.
