Friendship and Other Finds

Pyrex Love - Friendship, Dots, Snowflake Blue

We haven’t had a roundup of recent Pyrex finds for quite awhile. The Friendship pattern seems to have recently appeared more than once for us at the thrifts and swap meets. Shown here are a single #441 Cinderella Bowl, #503 1.5 quart Refrigerator Dish with lid, #475 Round Casserole with Lid, and a #473 Round Casserole without lid.

We also came across another #402 New Dots bowl in yellow - very hard to pass it up even though we’ve completed our set. You’ll recall Rachel Ray using them on her 30 Minute Meals show. And last, two nice Snowflake Blue #501 refrigerator dishes with lids. Not shown here is another Snowflake Blue item - a #402 bowl.

    I love Friendship! I have never, ever seen it anywhere outside of Ebay, which is strange. I’d love to find a refrigerator dish in either of these patterns at a thrift store or yard sale. Speaking of which, yard sale season is almost here!! :) I just know I’m going to have lots of luck this year.

    I’ve had several pyrex bowls for years that have been through constant use and abuse in my home. Never thought anyone had any interest in them until I stumbled across your site a few months ago. Now I’m collecting rabidly, and even my husband helps hunt them down. As a matter of fact, my husband brought me home that exact square Friendship refrigerator dish and lid that you have pictured above yesterday, along with a pretty Horizon blue 472 bowl. Got both for under $20 at a junk-tique store around here. My biggest treasures so far are the entire Cinderella Friendship set that I accumulated between two auctions on Ebay for less than $40 total, and a Horizon mixing bowl set still in the box with packaging for $37 at a flea market. I also have a Primary set and all are the old, thick glass style, in great condition from the 1940’s or so with just the Pyrex and U.S. Pat on the bottom. I found a a pretty little butter dish for $4 too. I think currently, not counting lids, I have about 56 bowls and refrigerator dishes. Can’t wait for the new pyrex book to come out either. Oh, and still have a few I use on a daily basis too. They just don’t make stuff like this anymore. Love them, and love this site!

    I’ve been lurking around your blog recently. I absolutely love all the vintage goodness here! So, I thought it was time to leave a comment, introduce myself & say Hello.

    I also collect vintage items & I love sharing them with everyone! I have started hosting a weekly blog carnival called Vintage Thingies Thursdays. I think you’ll really enjoy it. Come on over. I’ll fix you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up!

    I am a long time pyrex collector, and I just discovered your blog this week. Thanks for all the lovely info, the imbedded ebay haunts and the gorgeous photos. Where do you live that you can attend pyrex swaps? That sounds like so much fun. If I have dishes that you only have stock photos of, should I snap a picture for you?

    I recently quite by accident discovered the world of vintage Pyrex. I dropped and broke my old 1 cup measuring cup. So I went to the local store to replace it. Everything was in plastic or in a cheap looking blue tinged glass. I started my search because I knew I had to have the vintage cup. I wanted to know a little history about Pyrex and I found just what I needed to know on your great website. I think I might take a new respect for all those Pyrex bowls, etc. that I see at garage sales.
    I am bidding on a cup on ebay right now.
