Have You Seen This Dish?

Hi all. I am on a quest to find a Christmas gift for my mother. She wants a dish just like this one, only it needs to be longer and wider. It's about the right depth, though it could even be an inch deep rather than two. She has one, but the coating is coming off, so she needs a new one. It doesn't even have to be this pattern, but the specs do need to be as follows:

Non stick
Approx. 9X13 (and 1 to 2 inches deep)
oven friendly
available to purchase

Just so that you know, my sister and I have looked in all the usual places, such as Khol's, Penny's, Target, Yonkers, Dillards, KMart, Wal Mart, ebay, amazon, several kitchen specialty stores, google, and so forth. I even looked in Cub. We bought the pan in the link because my sister thought it was bigger (she was so excited by the picture that she forgot to read the words). Also, you should know that Pyrex and Corning are not non stick unless they are listed as such. Basically, any dish that does not say non stick is not non stick.

Basically, I am looking for one or both of the following pieces of information. Ideally, if you know where I could buy one, that would make my life since I've been looking for over a week.

Failing that, however, I would be satisfied to know the brand. I don't think Pyrex is the actual brand because I think we'd have found it on an antique site by now. (I had a similar experience with some other dishes this summer. Once I found the brand name, I had lots of hits. Before that, I couldn't find anything.)

We would settle for knowing where we could find a dish called Pyrex Clear Advantage, which was a non-stick glass pan sold in the 80s. We found a past listing (for one located in Singapore) on a Yahoo auction site.

Thanks for your help.

Uh, well, I have been antiquing in the past, but I have not seen one. It will probably be a year-round project, though I do have a few more leads now.
