In 1920, Pyrex granted a license to its competitor, Fry Glass Company, to produce Pyrex with the name “Fry Oven Glass.” One of the most popular lines to come out of that joint venture was called “
” and they marketed the line as “glass with the iridescence of a pearl.” They manufactured a full line of Pearl Pearl bakeware and the knobs and rims glow with a bluish-white opalescence.
Fry also collaborated with Farberware of Brooklyn, NY to manufacture aluminum carriers/trivets for their casseroles and pie plates. I fell in love with that Pyrex/Fry/Farberware collaboration and bought the first piece I ever saw. It was so unique…nothing like I had ever seen before and I had to have it.
Fry ovenware is marked "FRY OVENGLASS."
I stand corrected!!!
I originally identified the mark below as Fry Glass....it is Federal Glass!
I'm sorry for the mistake!!!
Thank you for setting me straight!!!
I'll be joining Allison at Vintage Pollyana for the Tell Me Tuesday party. Won't you join me?
And I'll show off my "close-ups" over at the Macro Party at Tracy' Trinkets and Treasures.
