Nearly everyone has one of these Pyrex Measuring Cups with the red writing on them in their house somewhere. They are simply the easiest and best thing to use when doing a number of different kitchen chores.

According to Mauzy’s Pyrex: The Unauthorized Collector’s Guide, the red writing started around 1940 or so and was introduced in both 1 cup, 1 pint and 1 quart sizes, in dry and wet cups (the spout indicates a “wet” measuring cup). The numbers are 508, 516 and 532 for those sizes respectively. The older models are non-metric and the writing is sometimes not “raised” or “incised” into the glass (that is it is printed on it directly on the glass like the Pyrex Colors patterns). As always, you can tell when you have a pre-1990 measuring cup by the handle - a “closed D” handle represents the older pieces.

Here’s an example of an older 516 1 Pint Liquid measuring cup:

This one is interesting because the word “Pyrex” is printed on the spout side of the measuring cup. It is also printed horizontally, and I’ve seen a number of them that have the writing on the side of the cup as well as having it printed vertically. Here is a side view of the 516:

This measuring cup has ticks for cups as well as ounces. Interestingly, the bottom of many of the older ones say “For general household and photographic use only”. Here is an example of the 1 cup #508 size and 1 pint #516 size measuring cups that are slightly different than the previous ones:

As you can see, the writing on these is vertical and the Pyrex logo occurs on both sides of the cup instead of just once underneath the spout. Also, to me the writing appears less red and more “pink” but I can’t be sure if that’s just due to the red fading.
