#500 dishes sold in 1959 and after in any color or patterns, therefore, should have the later style lids.Bear in mind, of course, that either style lid will fit any dish of corresponding size, so one can never assume a lid was originally sold with its dish unless it is found as new old stock.
Farbharmonie und ähnliche Farben für Ihre Homepage, Website oder DTP Projekt.Clear glass #500 series refrigerator storage dishes were made both in the late 1940s and in the early 1980s.The different backstamp styles, consistent with the era of manufacture, serve to identify from which timeframe an individual example was made.From 1947 until approximately 1959, the lids' tops had longitudinal ridges flanking a smooth middle, and had smooth undersides.After 1959, the top surfaces were smooth and the undersides were fluted lengthwise.You had to see him: the gorgeous shirt, the cuff links, the way everything billowed.He was in the dark and suddenly the spotlight picked him up—he was electric, he was hot, it was almost a sexual thing.It started in 1957 at Chicago’s most famous nightclub, Chez Paree.The man known as “the greatest entertainer in the world” was onstage, the smoke from his cigarette trellising the air. A revised backstamp, with PATENTED above PYREX and MAY 27, 1919 below, was used after that date through 1924. A model number and, later, the capacity in pints or quarts were added above, and OVEN WARE below. Later pieces are also recognizable by, instead of "MADE IN U. A.", the the wording "by CORNING, Corning, NY, USA" with the verbiage NO BROILER OR STOVETOP or, later, BAKING AND MICROWAVE below. Starting in the mid-1970s, equivalent metric capacities were also embossed on pieces, therefore any seen so-marked can be dated positively later than that.
