Pyrex Gourmet Promotional Casserole in Black and White




I was chatting with a fellow collector who asked to purchase something from me.  We were getting towards the end of the conversation when she said "look what I found today".  I told her that was one of the things on my wishlist for sometime now.  Instead of her doing a purchase we did a trade.  Both of us were very happy!

Here is some information from the Corelle Corner site, an excellent source on Pyrex.

A new variation on this pattern became available on a third 475 casserole during the mid 1960s.  With a plain opal background, the decoration is printed in black rather than gold, and the in-between bits of the design are absent.  It uses a different candle-warmer too, the same one that belongs to the Zodiac Casserole.
      
The black & white version could be purchased from direct-selling catalogue companies like Popular Club Plan.  Its original box has no name on it at all, so it might not be officially named "Gourmet Casserole".
