Gosh, it was very tempting to call this pattern something like “Daisy Chain” or “Springtime Blossoms”. But seeing as there is ALREADY enough confusion regarding the Spring Blossom and Crazy Daisy names, we avoided those terms altogether and labeled this pattern as “Flower Power” for the time being. Until we find a boxed item w/ official name, we’ll call it this.
It’s an apt name though… this pattern totally reminds us of the whole 60s flower power thingy. While the smaller green flowers DO look an awful lot like they are from Spring Blossom, the large yellow outlined flowers that are plastered all over the item distinguish it from that pattern. In addition to the smaller green flowers, there are also similar small yellow flowers that mostly occur in the centers of the larger yellow flowers. We also see occasional medium sized yellow flowers that encircle a smaller one. Other motifs are curved lines of green dots that seem to be drawn almost randomly.
We are still finding out about the different sizes and shapes that pyrex juice carafes came in. We are going to call this particular shape a “Diagonal Mouth” for the time being, because that’s what it looks like. The juice carafe is tapered as you go toward up the side, but then flares out wider at the top providing a really convenient place to grab the carafe. It has a downturned spout for pouring.
Originally, this came with a yellow lid that looks almost like a drain plug with a smaller top that has a metal (?) disc on it. We’re not sure if this pattern also came in different sizes and shapes, although we think we’ve seen different carafe shapes having this pattern. The side of the carafe is marked as Pyrex (R) USA but there is no capacity. When measured, however, it came out at 1.5 quarts.
