Your #222 cake pan was made in 1950, and was produced until about 1983.  There are other #222 cake pans with different handles that were made as early as 1947, but the full tab handle on your dish is what let me know it was made in 1950.

For your information, this year is the 100 year anniversary of the Pyrex brand, which was first released in 1915.  We are organizing an exhibition called America’s Favorite Dish: Celebrating a Century of Pyrex, which will be on view here at the Rakow Research Library from June 6, 2015, through March 17, 2016. You can learn more about it here:  http://www.cmog.org/collection/exhibitions/pyrex.

As a non-profit, cultural institution, The Museum cannot offer appraisal services. If you wish to determine the value of your glass piece, you may want to consult a reliable local antique dealer, or send a photograph of the object to a reputable auction house (see ArtNet’s directory of auction houses worldwide, http://www.artnet.com/auctionhousedirectory/index.aspx).

You can also find appraisers through several professional organizations: The American Society of Appraisers (phone) 1-800-ASA-VALU (online) http://www.appraisers.org; The Appraisers Association of America (phone) 212-889-5404 (online) http://www.appraisersassoc.org; and The International Society of Appraisers (phone) 312-224-2567 (online) http://www.isa-appraisers.org. 

Your local library may have a subscription to Maloney’s Antiques and Collectibles Resource Directory, which provides listings of appraisers by type of collectible.
