I wasn’t sure where what categories to put this Opal White soup bowl. Because it is extremely heavy and has the Corning glassblower mark on the back, I figured it’s probably one of the WWII or Korean War items (we actually haven’t listed the handwarmer mugs we have yet).
The bowl is very similar to the #715 9 inch soup bowl with rim Tableware item that Pyrex made. However, it is a little larger at about 9 5/8 inches and is slightly taller/deeper at more than 2 inches. The color is a standard opal white which is different than the handwarmer mugs we have which are a slight off-white in color. But the most interesting thing is that this piece is actually dated which doesn’t occur very frequently with Pyrex. It has a 1951 date stamp.
