Hi, Linda from A La Carte here!  I am doing a Halloween tablescape over on my blog and thought the black and white Pyrex is a perfect fit!  I wanted to share these with you on The Pyrex Collective

 These two dishes are both promotional items

This Cinderella Oval Divided dish was a Fall Promotional Gift item in 1958.  It doesn't have an 'official' name but is called Barbed Wire
I was the lucky winner of this in a giveaway from my good friend and fellow Pyrex lover Vonlipi
I love this dish!

The other black and white is also a promotional item from Christmas 1959.  It is a snack server with a handle.  Again no official pattern name, but it is refereed to as Compass. 
This divided dish is a 1.5 Qt 
The brass handle is detachable.  It slips over the rim on each end of the dish.  I read on Pyrex Love that the handle is often lost. I was thrilled to find this in a thrift store last year for $2.99

So here are my favorite Black & White Pyrex pieces!

Happy Halloween!


  1. Like the white and black, especially Barbed Wire - I need to find some......

  2. Linda, I am drooling!!! What a beautiful tablescape!! I don't have any black and white pieces, but I'm always on the lookout for them!! And, I've never seen any here at the thrift stores with the handles.

  3. Oooh Linda I love what you did with those gorgeous pieces!

    I love the snack server with the handle. Glad you like the dish I sent you! :)

    Happy Halloween to you!

  4. You always set such beautiful tablescapes ~ this one is perfect for Halloween and I love the Pyrex!

  5. I have both of these pieces. I found them this year. I adore them so much!!

  6. Happy Halloween Linda! Love it!
