As a result of numerous email requests and to avoid confusing the two colors of Canadian made Pyrex, I offer the following guide.
Canadian made Pyrex was made in two shades of blue. A darker blue also known as Delphite blue and a lighter shade of blue called Robin's Egg Blue, it is more of a turquiose blue. It should not be confused with American made Fire-King Turquiose Blue.
The first color to be dealt with here is the Robin's Egg Blue Canadian Made Pyrex also known as "Crown" or "King's Crown" with a piecrust edge. Plates, bowls, and saucers will have this crown design. Please note that the cups, coffee mugs, creamer and sugar do not have the crown design on them.
