Identifiers / Alternate Names: Terra is one of the more interesting patterns which was introduced in the 60s. It's characterized by a very dark chocolate brown finish that has lighter orange-brown lines seemingly "scratched" into it. The lines almost appear to be randomly distributed and of random width. The main dark brown finish is very matte in feel - it feels like a handcrafted unfinished glaze. This pattern came in the normal mixing bowls and casseroles but also featured several dinnerware items including handle-less mugs, 9/12" plates and salad bowls. Also known as: Brown Lines, Terra Cotta, Brown Terra, Earth.

More terribles, I mean Terra Bowls for your viewing pleasure. Hehe. These wonderful small bowls were given to us by Jackie and are the same shape and style as the Pyrex Tableware #708 10 ounce bowls that are approximately 5 inches across. They have a very heavy duty feel and feature the unmistakable Terra pattern of random concentric lines in black/brown and lighter brown.
As far as we can tell they are nearly identical to the standard 708 tableware bowl in size and shape. They were sold in sets of 4, and we’ve seen some boxes where we think the model number on them is “8-T” (it may be 6-T, the picture was difficult to see). The bowls that we have feature a backstamp that is the Corning glassblower as shown below. This is interesting, but not unheard of - you’ll see this on some items such as the Compatibles sugar bowls where they used an older design to make a newer piece in a similar (or identical) shape.
