I have really been cutting back on what I purchase online, but I just couldn't pass this up!
Army Authorized Pyrex. Double Tough. Who knew anything like this existed? I sure didn't. Let's take a look inside!
This must have been a sample set. It's all packed away nice and neat in the original box. The inside of the lid shows that the pieces were available in either green band or red band. Come on! This is the Army! Green should be the color of choice!
The set came with 6 pieces. A dinner plate, a salad plate, 2 different bowls, and a cup and saucer.
And, since it is apparently a sales sample, each piece comes complete with an item number printed on it!
I really don't know anything more about this, but if I were to make a guess, I would say that it probably dates from the early 1960s. Has anyone else ever come across something like this? I wonder if they did blue bands for the Navy...
