Crown Crystal Glass (owned by parent company ACI Glass) were the producers of PYREX in Australia from 1926. Up until 1961, all PYREX glassware produced in Australia was clear.

After importing opal PYREX from the UK (since 1959), Crown Crystal Glass started production of their own opal PYREX in 1961. The ‘Festive Ware’ product line launched, which included collector favourites such as Flannel Flowers, Black Rose and Golden Pine.

Through the years Crown Crystal Glass has gone through a variety of company name changes, resulting in many pieces of Australian PYREX labelled with various backstamps and some, with nothing at all.

A rough timeline of company names and dates are AGEE PYREX (until 1963), CROWN AGEE PYREX (late 1960s), CROWN PYREX (1970s), CROWN OVENWARE (1970s) and PYREX OVENWARE (late 1970s until early 1980s).

THIS LISTING:

Pattern: Doily
Model: Nesting Bowl Set - complete - includes 8", 7", 6" and 5"

Produced from the early 1970s

All bowls are in great vintage condition. Colour is bright on all with no dishwasher damage - the 8" red is shinier than the others, but the others are still shiny, it's a difference in colour application. There are no chips, no cracks on any. 

The 8" red has some light utensil marks internally, the 7" orange has some light wear on the rims (dark and slightly rough), the 6" black nothing to mention and the 5" blue has a small black spot on the rim.
