Pyrex Love - Moon Deco Casserole

NOTE: please read all the updates below…

This is a very striking example of Pyrex’s limited edition items, although it doesn’t really remind me so much of a moon. Released in 1971 as a promotion, there’s not much mistake identifiying the Moon Deco Cinderella Casserole with it’s crazy looking red and black dot that looks almost like an eyeball. Many people don’t know that this also came with a black plate for the casserole to sit on (that some mention is Bakelite) instead of the usual casserole stand. You see most of the Moon Deco casseroles being sold without the underplate. From what I can gather, the bottom of the plate is marked “475-T-2 Made For Pyrex Ware”.

This casserole is a 2 1/2 quart #475 model. There’s also red dots of the sides of the opal white casserole base. But the cover is what attracts most people’s attention. It consists of a huge black dot, with a smaller white dot inside that, and then a smaller red dot inside of that one, all printed off center. Because of its striking nature, it’s sells for quite a bit even though we don’t believe it’s spectacularly rare.

Update (5/07): We may have to revise our earlier statement about the rarity. According to halloweve1977, who contributed the Moon Deco picture above, the dealer at the antique fair where she found this piece mentioned that it was a 1960s piece that was only given to “distributors who had sold 50,000 pieces.” And according to the dealer only 1000 were ever produced which is quite small when you consider that according to dealer sheets we have seen in books, some of the promo pieces had “only” 80,000 pieces made.

Definitely something to think about - but we haven’t yet verified the story independently with any other Pyrex dealer yet, and the previous date we’ve seen was 70s instead of 60s.

UPDATE (11/07): We are now certain that this was NOT a special piece that was only given to distributors. In fact, it appeared in a 1972 catalog along with several other promotional items - thank you to Mackem54 who provided the definitive scan with this information.
