Vintage Pyrex #401 Small 1 1/2 PT Mixing Bowl - Blue 1950's Dishware
The very first set of Pyrex mixing bowls debuted in the 1940's. It was a set of four nesting sizes that contained the primary colors yellow, red, green and blue. A popular and colorful kitchen set, these favorites remained favorites for the next thirty years, continuously in manufacture decade by decade. This bowl is from that original primary design but was made in the 1950s and is the smallest bowl of the set with a 1 and 1/2 pint capacity. It is called blue but the color is more like a bright turquoise which makes it a great candidate for all vintage kitchen lovers since it looks absolutely marvelous next to reds, oranges, bright greens and yellows.
- Bright and shiny patina with no cloudy dishwasher fading
- Stamped on bottom with the following makers mark info: 401 1 1/2 PT TRADEMARK 33 PYREX R MADE IN U.S.A OVENWARE
In bright and shiny condition, this bowl contains no chips or cracks or fading due to time spent in the dishwasher. There are some very light grey nesting marks on the exterior of the bowl, which are caused by storage (rubbing against other bowls that this one sat inside of). Please see photos. The interior is clean and bright.
