If you remember all these things, welcome to the neighborhood. I confess that I am a very nostalgic person and treasure my memories from those times when my world seemed so much simpler. I am fascinated by trivia that is related to the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s era, and especially the kitchen because some of my best memories originated around an old formica table. I thought I would share a few of my most recently learned facts about the history of some of my favorite things. All of these great facts can be found in the book, “Pyrex”, Schiffer Publications, 2000, by Barbara Mauzy.

....In 1864 Amory Houghton, Sr. purchased the Brooklyn Flint Glass Company....four years later, this plant and 100 employees moved by canal boat to Corning, New York and the renamed business became Corning Flint Glassworks.

....In 1875, Corning Glass Works became incorporated....the products manufactured were predominantly railroad signal glassware, thermometer tubing and pharmaceuticalglassware.

....the first light bulb blanks were produced for Thomas Edison in 1879.

....Pyrex brand glassware was introduced in 1915. This new glassware had incredible resistance to thermal expansion and contraction, making it very tolerant of sudden and extreme temperature changes. It’s roots were in the heat resistant glass developed for railroad use.

....Pyrex brand chemical ware, introduced in 1917, was impervious to chemicals. This high level of resistance allowed scientists and researchers to conduct their work knowing the results would not be tainted.

....In 1920 Fry glass company was granted a license to produce Pyrex with the name “Fry Oven Glass.”

....Round, clear mixing bowls were first produced in 1931, with the introduction of a 2 quart bowl. It was not until 1943 that nests of bowls were issued.

....Engraved ovenware was offered as early as 1918....”Style RD” was red decorated glassware produced in 1936 and 1937. The chemicals used to create this line were found to be poisonous and the line was discontinued....these pieces are most prized among Pyrex collectors.

....The first Pyrex measuring cup was introduced in 1925 and featured dual spouts. The design of this fifty cent item was altered almost immediately and a single spouted measuring cup was offered in 1926.

....The first refrigerator sets were marketed in 1925.

.....Flameware, a wonderfully durable line of glassware designed to be used directly on the stove ....was introduced in 1936....Flameware was produced until 1979.

....The first colored bowl set....The famous 400 Multicolored Mixing Bowl set of four
nested bowls was produced into the 1960’s....the “Opal Bowl Set (entirely white) was produced only in extremely rare set.

....Cinderella bowls were introduced in 1958....the colors predominantly reflect those of the 1960’s.

....Set 500, a colored refrigerator set , were first made available in 1949.

....Many casseroles were briefly offered as promotional items....they were made available seasonally....or part of named collections, allowing one to saturate a kitchen in lovely matching Pyrex colors.
