I am not 100% sure, but I believe the Pyrex Old Town pattern is a take-off on a popular style of designs called “Blue Onion”. This is because the pattern is constantly referred to as blue onion as opposed to Old Town. Interestingly, we have seen the word “Town” being used with and without an “e” at the end. We were actually using the “e” for awhile, but we have also seen an original box of mugs that said “Old Town Blue”.
Like most of the regular issues of these #1410 style D-handle Diagonal mugs, they were created to compliment the popular Corelle Livingware series. I’ve seen several other styles of mugs, including ones that look more like tea-cups. These mugs again bring up childhood memories because an aunt and uncle had a complete set of the mugs, bowls and plates that we used to eat off of everytime we went over to their house when I was young. Many joint camping trips were planned over late night coffees (chocolate for the kids) served in these Old Towne mugs.
