Sorry, we’ve been away from the blog for awhile. While we’ve slowed down on our pyrex buying, we still keep an eye out for items that are either rare or that we need in our collection. Above are a few recent finds, we picked up cheaply.
In the back is a 403 style mixing bowl which has an unknown pedigree. In fact, in our earlier days of collecting I believe we passed over this bowl several times because we didn’t think it was Pyrex. It has absolutely no markings on the bottom. We’ve seen them in various sizes. It has been informally called “Eyes” or “Blue Eyes”. We’d still like to find out more about this series and whether it was a promotional or not.
The other two are common patterns, but we picked them up because they’re both useful and they were needed in the collection. This is a #913 Spring Blossom Loaf pan and a #502 Turquoise Butterprint Refrigerator Dish with lid. They were $3 and $1 respectively, so they easily found a home in our collection.
