Pyrex Love - Brittany Blue 479 Bowl

The Brittany Blue pattern seems to be a rather uncommon find, although they aren’t extremely expensive or widely sought after. Along with the brown Federal Eagle pattern, this interesting set of light blue bowls was grouped together in something called the Hearth Group. A few online sites had pictures of the complete pattern(s).

The mixing bowl set actually only comes with 2 bowls with interesting numbers: a 1.5 quart bowl with the number 478 and an odd sized 3 quart bowl with the number 479. The pattern itself is mostly purple-blueish flowers on a lighter blue background and set of lines on the rim of the bowl (2 solid and 1 leaf pattern). This doesn’t seem like one of those pieces that make you say, “Hey, Pyrex!” I’m not sure whether this isn’t a promotional piece - the fact that it was made only in 1967, there’s only 2 bowls and there aren’t the “normal” matching casseroles and other dishes seem to point toward that.

Here’s a closeup of the pattern on the 3 quart bowl we have. The flowers and vines seem almost hand-painted with sort of messy brushstrokes.
