We are starting up this article because we haven’t been able to find reliable documents that list the different sizes and ID#s for Pyrex Tableware items, which are also known in general glassware terms as “Restaurant Ware“. They are also sometimes labeled as “Institutional Ware” because they were used in schools, military establishments and hospitals. They are often characterized by less “fancy” designs than normal Pyrex kitchen items. But we think they are great, highly collectible and relatively cheap.

Pyrex made Tableware shapes in “Standard Weight” as well as a few in “Lightweight”. These Lightweight shapes only occured for the patterns called Autumn Bands and Chariot, and are listed below the Standard Weight table that follows.

Just to remind you, nearly all Tableware is characterized by a bottom stamp that says something along the lines of “Pyrex (R) Brand Tableware by Corning Made in U.S.A.” along with the model ID# and the batch/mold number (which is irrelevant to most collectors). We have been having some problems with numbers seemingly repeating among different items (i.e. #713 for a child’s cup and also for a dessert plate) so if you have information about why this happens please let us know. We had always assumed that the numbers were different.

We’ve recently received a lot of great help identifying the Tableware pieces and sizes from Jeff Tevyaw (jeffpyrex), a collector of Restaurant Ware. Much of the new information below, including the “notes” column are his personal research on these items. Jeff also sent us photocopies of some of the actual Pyrex manuals and dealer schedules which have detailed information on patterns and sizes. Much of our information so far has only come from our personal collection and references on Ebay, so this was greatly appreciated. We hope to create some pages in the future that will show pictures of the different sizes, and perhaps snippets of the known patterns.
