Vintage Pyrex dishes are oven-safe and made in the good old USA. These refrigerator dishes came in 3 sizes 501 (1.5 cup) #502 (1.5 pint) #503 (1.5 quart). This is the 502 series which were made between 1947-67.

One is in excellent condition, no chips or cracks or scratches almost looks itveas never used the ither is in good condition but you can see the outside finish is faded and splotchy in area. It is said the medium size was designed both to fit a pound of butter and to fit in a woman's hand. Lids were designed to accommodate stacking in either the normal or a space-saving inverted position.

Unlike modern day products, Pyrex is a great durable design. Unlike a fragile, unwearable vintage lace dress, Pyrex can still be used day in and day out with no decline in quality of the product. Pyrex bowls were originally made of borosilicate glass, which is very resistant to thermal shock. Currently, Pyrex is made of soda-lime glass, presumably as a cost-cutting measure, as soda-lime glass is very inexpensive. Borosilicate PYREX Glass has excellent thermal shock resistance. It does not expand or contract like ordinary Soda-Lime glass does when exposed to rapid changes in heat or cold.

To identify Pyrex use the glass markings, stamps, and logos on the pieces themselves to identify when the glass was produced. The oldest Pyrex markings should be on the bottom of glass pieces and feature Pyrex in all capital letters inside a circle with CG for Corning Glassworks.

Also have two red 501 series on another ad.
