The FIRST gift set offered came in 1953 – The Heinz Baking Dish – the last came in 1983. After the HUGE success of the 1956 seasonal decorator casseroles, distribution of PYREX PROMO-Patterns became more widespread.These promo-items often came a sets which included glassware and cradles, warmers, or mounts of some sort. The glassware items released in these sets often had NO pattern names assigned - BUT instead were simply associated with the promotional product released, as per its function.These items were produced for a limited amount of time and allowed to be on store shelves for a limited time, as well (pulled off of store shelves, for the next promotion). In all, approximately 135 different gift-set patterns were made available over that time.Empire Scroll Pattern - Vines -This Empire Scroll Pattern Casserole was a holiday season release in 1961 - Nick-Named - Vines.
