This is an interesting piece of Pyrex Tableware in the Copper Filigree (or Brown Filigree, or Brown Scroll, whatever you want to call it!) pattern. I don’t see this size of Tableware at the thrift shops as much. It’s a tiny 4 3/4 inch shallow bowl that I’ve seen called a “sauce dish” as well as a “creamer dish”. The first is I guess if you want to pour out some hot sauce or ketchup and mix it up with something else to dip fries in. The second would be that little dish filled with tiny tubs of cream that you would get when you order coffee at a diner.
Whatever it is, it’s also interesting in that the pattern is quite different than the Copper Filigree pattern on other dishes and bowls. Instead of a wide band of brown, it’s more like a single scroll line of leaves and dots. I think they did that because it was too difficult to print the entire design on such a small bowl rim. In any case, it’s quite different than the standard pattern, enough so that we decided to show both patterns in the pattern reference.
Here’s a picture of the dish with a jalapeno pepper inside, just to show the relative size.
