Pyrex Love - Compass Star CarafeWe had been debating whether to include these Carafes in the “Flameware” section or Vintage Color Pyrex section and finally decided on the latter. Although early models of this type of carafe were indeed created as Flameware, this one and most models you’ll find date from when a lot of the Vintage Color items were made.

Corning made a large variety of these glass coffee carafes with plastic handles and tops with many different designs. This one features 8 pointed “Compass” or star designs in gold leaf all over the side of the carafe. It features a wide gold metal band similar to the ones used on Flameware secured by one screw to the open plastic handle. The top of the carafe has a wide flared mouth.

Interestingly, this piece is not actually marked as “Pyrex” but as “Corning - Heat Proof Glass”. We continually see this variation, even among items that look nearly identical - we are going to continue to list these pieces here even if we are not sure that the material they are made of was Pyrex. The carafe is also marked in gold leaf with a warning: “Use Wire Grid on Electric Range”. The original carafes came with either what looks like a wire star shape or a wire grid that is meant to go on the bottom to protect the carafes from direct heat.

The top of this carafe is a plastic lid that snaps directly into the mouth of the carafe. It has a knob on the top that has gold metallic top. We’re not sure of the size of this carafe because the capacity is not written on the item. It does have 2 “cup measurement” symbols on the side to denote “2 Cups” and “4 Cups”, but it looks like it would hold more than that - perhaps up to 6 cups.

Update 08/07:
We are now fairly certain that this was some sort of promotion piece with Maxwell House Coffee in which they sold this carafe filled with their instant coffee. The reason is that those “cup measurment” symbols on the side are actually the same as Maxwell House’s logo (thanks to pyrexlady52 for helping us realize that). We believe it dates to around the late 60s to early 70s.
