This Pyrex promo casserole was produced for the holidays in 1957. It features wonderful Black Tulips and other interesting designs. This is a standard #043 sized 1.5 quart oval casserole that came with a gold brass wire caddy with those standard white handles. This is one of the few times where we actually have that caddy as well, and you can see it in the picture above.
The casserole itself is plain opal white and the pattern consists mostly of the large black tulips that have interesting vertical dashed striations on them. The leaves of the tulips have outlined circles on them. The other designs on the casserole are small 5 sided “pinwheels”
We have actually seen an advertisement that lists this as a “Decorator” casserole. As we have said before, we really don’t like this classification because it’s so confusing for collectors… “decorator” really should be the formal name, although many times it was the only thing listed on the boxes.
