Pyrex Love - Balloons Chip and Dip

This is without a doubt one of the most popular Chip and Dip sets there are. Produced in Spring 1958 as a promotion, it features great antique hot air balloons along with various other celestial motifs like suns and moons. The turquoise color definitely makes it a hotter item than some of the other chip and dip sets. The picture of the set above is courtesy of Merebearlandon.

We tend to see the two items of this set being sold separately quite often. To our knowledge the bowls did not come separately, even though they are the same shapes as the standard Cinderella bowls. There is a larger #444 chip bowl which holds 4 quarts and a smaller #441 dip bowl which holds 1.5 pints. They came with a gold/brass colored cradle holder that would attach to the larger bowl that the smaller bowl sat in.

We have seen some original boxes for these sets which were darkish blue in color and had the sun, moon and balloon icons on the front.
