Here's something you certainly don't find every day... An original sealed box of Pyrex nesting mixing bowls!
Surprise a collector for the holiday season with this gift of a truly rare, vintage treasure. Two sides of the box are lifted so you can see in the photos (as best I can) that the correct bowls are indeed there in their original packaging -the rest of the box is still factory sealed.
Photos of bowls outside of the box are stock images. 401 - 1.5 Pint 402 - 1.5 Quart 403 - 2.5 Quart 404 - 4 Quart. No odors of any kind. The success of the Pfaltzgraff pattern evocative of hand-painted folk art prompted Corning to create the Homestead design. Corning also suggested Homestead would coordinate nicely with the Old Town Blue (Onion) pattern.
Designed by Estelle Rothstein in 1976, Homestead was among one of several patterns released in response to the growing interest in country living. The initial release of Homestead was a blue design on a speckled beige background. A later iteration, also known as Homestead, was released with a brown pattern on a solid beige background.Though Pyrex patterns were limited, availability of a wide array of dishes was still possible. Homestead was released in the 300 and 400 Mixing Bowl sets, the Cinderella Bowl set (441-44), the four-piece refrigerator set (501-03), Round Casserole sets (470 and 480), Bake Ware, and a mug.
Other items exist, but with only a speckled beige background and no design. Homestead was discontinued in 1980 and replaced by Forest Fancies in 1981.
