Vintage 1960's JAJ Pyrex Luncheon Plate - Autumn Glory Pattern - Made in England
Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it... George Eliot
In the early 1900s, Pyrex was introduced to the American glassware market and quickly took hold as a practical, attractive and functional product of home kitchens across the country. In the early 1920's, England also wanted to produce their own types of Pyrex for British kitchens and design sensibilities. The first to acquire British rights to the Corning Company's innovation was James A. Jobling in 1923. His company, JAJ produced Pyrex pieces for the next 50 years for the U.K. market, all manufactured in Sunderland, England. Incorporating their own styles of imagery and design, these British pieces are super fun to collect because they vary slightly from original American Pyrex. Their covered dish lids had no handles, their dishware designs included a range of original patterns from florals to abstract geometrics to seasonal themes and their shapes are just a little bit different than the US versions.
This luncheon plate features the Autumn Glory pattern which contains a bouquet of flowers in an avocado, rust, mustard and bright white color palette. Made in the 1960's, it pairs very well with other midcentury colors, American or British, and makes a pretty accent dish for Fall display.
