Vintage Pyrex

Photobucket

I found a piece of vintage Pyrex at an antiques market a couple of weeks ago.  I like the turquoise color, and it cost $1.75. The pattern is called Butterprint, and it was made in the early nineteen sixties.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this article in the May issue of Country Living Magazine:

This issue is all about bargains, and if you don't have it yet, you should really check it out!

I like using Pyrex and Corning Ware refrigerator boxes and casserole dishes because I think it is safer than petroleum-based products like plastics.  They can go from oven, to table, to refrigerator, to microwave.

I also found this Hazel Atlas Kitchen Aids pattern small mixing bowl.  I bought it for $2.00.

I found a great website all about Pyrex.  It is a great resource, and you can visit it here.  Do you collect vintage (or new) Pyrex?

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. I love your question: "Do you collect...?" Heck, I bought it new and I'm still using it. I also inherited quite a bit from my Mom. ;)

  4. I love pyrex. I wouldn't say I'm exactly a collector. I have several pieces but they are all clear and only a few are old. I have a covered casserole that was my mother-in-law's. I use it all the time. I saw the article in Country Living. If I had an empty cupboard somewhere I'd get some more...but I'm about at my limit! Thanks for a great post...~Ann

  6. I have Pyrex, but nothing vintage. (I am not a huge fan of plastic either.) I remember my mom having the same rooster one that you have. Haven't seen it in ages, wonder if it broke? Anyway, they're both great finds & they look to be in excellent condition.

  7. Hello Ricki. Luck you for the fab finds. I love the turquoise design of the pyrex. Although here pyrex are a bit expensive. What we usually have here are the transparent tray like pyrex. We use it for baked macaroni and other oven dishes. I collect too. In fact a lot of things. I find simple happiness and excitement when new things come to my collections.

  11. Pyrex totally reminds me of when I was a child. My mom had tons of Pyrex.I love the pieces that you have. I see Pyrex all the time in my favorite thrift stores. I better buy a few pieces before the prices blow up.
