Vintage 24cm amber Pyrex pie plate #229 with handles. Excellent condition and intact scalloped edging. Bake up your grandmother's famous apple pie recipe in this beautiful dish. Found, with love, in Southwestern Ohio.
History of the piece; Pyrex started when engineers and designers with Corning Glass Works developed of temperature-resistent borosilicate glass from recycled railroad lantern globes. Bessie Littleton, wife of one of the scientists, discovered the glass was perfect for her sponge cake baking. This kicked off the new consumer product division. Eventually they developed their most popular line - the colorful enameled surface glass bowls.
