Interesting Facts about Pattern: - Brittany Blue was one of two patterns released as part of the Hearth Group product line. - New shapes and sizes were released with the Brittany Blue pattern. - The Brittany Blue casserole lids could be flipped upside down and used as a quiche dish. Pattern Description: In 1967 Pyrex debuted its Hearth Group product line. Brittany Blue and Federal Eagle were the two patterns released on the new line of products, which also included new Pyrex ware shapes. New shapes included the 2 ½ quart casserole (485) with a 9 ½ inch lid, the 1 ½ quart casserole (483) with a 7 ¾ inch lid, a 9 oz. mug (489), the 1 ½ quart mixing bowl (478), and the 3 quart mixing bowl (479). Both casserole lids could be used as quiche dishes and were referred to as a shallow baking dish. Of the two Hearth Group patterns Brittany Blue was the only one printed on casserole dishes. Two different mug patterns exist under the Brittany Blue pattern. One mug is comprised of a light blue background with a large blue allover flower design and the other mug has a blue background with a white leaf patterned band circling the bottom.

America’s Favorite Dish: Celebrating a Century of Pyrex commemorates the history of Pyrex brand housewares, developed by Corning Glass Works in 1915. Central to the story of Pyrex are women, traditionally the keepers of the home, who helped Corning designers and engineers develop the products to appeal to the burgeoning women’s consumer market. Corning Glass Works combined affordable products and attractive designs with strategic marketing to make Pyrex a mainstay in American homes. Pyrex advertisements, ephemera, and glassware from the combined collections of the Library and Museum will reveal the evolution of this modern American tradition.
