Corning's PYREX (R) glassware was created in the early 1900s to meet the needs of the expanding American railroad system, but American housewives' love of this recognizable, useful, and popular glass grew from the vast assortment of kitchen glass that followed. PYREX (R) brand kitchen glass was the first product that allowed one to prepare, cook, and store in the same piece, and as the twentieth century progressed, PYREX (R) options increased and color was added. You can usually tell what year a person got married by the color of the PYREX (R) in the kitchen cabinet! This expanded edition explores those colors along with the clear ovenware, Flameware, laboratory glass and now for the first time, restaurantware. There are more than 150 additional color photographs, advertisements, and catalog pages proving once again that this is the most inclusive and necessary book in print on this subject of PYREX (R).
