Pyrex Love - Homestead 401 Bowl

Although, the Homestead Pattern is one of the newer and more common ones around, it’s still very interesting because it’s one of the few “speckled” items for Pyrex color. These Homestead Mixing Bowls all have small dark brown flecks on a light tan or beige background. The pattern itself is sometimes a dark blue and sometimes a dark brown in color, though the blue seems a bit more common.

I think that this pattern is also sometimes confused with Pfaltzgraff or other makers because of its folk art look. It is also possible that the Homestead pattern was meant to coordinate with Old Town Blue Corelle items, as we have seen catalogues that show the Homestead items advertised alongside some of the Old Town Blue items.

Pyrex Love - Homestead 401 Bowl

Like many of the 400 series mixing bowls, these were also sold in sets of three as the 300 series (I’ve seen boxes for them) without the larger 4 quart #404 bowl. The sizes are the usual 401 1 1/2 pint, 402 1 1/2 quart, 403 2 1/2 quart and 404 4 quart.

Here’s a picture of the original 300 Series box that these came in courtesy of Teri from Copperton Lane Antiques.
