    This dish was found in a thrift store ~25yrs ago and has been in my kitchen cabinets ever since. Recently while retrieving the (slightly larger, totally contemporary) one from beneath it, I glanced again at its logo and realized that I'm not sure I've seen another quite like it -- and that it also (guessing) might thus be a good bit older than I would have thought before...?

    Its indeed about 6" square (at its base) and about 3" deep, with numbers "053-8R-653-B" molded into one handle and "C-A" on the other. The small circular logo reads "PYREX" in its middle (in a nifty sorta font) with "T.M.REG. U.S.PAT.OFF." around its edge and two "$" characters between. No chips or cracks but it certainly has its share of surface scratches/wear from its previous years of usage.

    One thing I *can* say about it with reasonable certainty -- its the perfect size to make a yummy 'green bean/mushroom soup/ff onion casserole'...?? ;-) :-) :-)

      Indeed it is older. From around 1915 to 1924

      I would agree with around 1920's. I believe this item and it's number were retired and put out of production shortly after the 20's. The logo is also consistent with that era.
