Lucky In Love - it DOES exist!

Lucky in Love

Fellow Pyrex fans and hounds - I’m sure you have seen this listing by now. An elusive “Lucky In Love” casserole has just ended on eBay today with the price of $662. Now that’s one of the biggest Holy Grails of Pyrex!

Of the years we’ve been collecting Pyrex, we have only seen it in a photo, in the Steinhauer/Rogove book. And many people ask us about it in the Flickr group from time to time: Does it really exist? Has there been one seen “in the wild?” Well, as of last week, it was all mystery and speculation until eBayer luvarknsas listed it.

I contacted her and she was very nice to let us use her photos, and she also shared a little info on the background - the casserole belonged to a good friend of hers whose mother was a hoarder. This Lucky in Love casserole was found among her things after she passed away. I am so curious as to where and how she got the casserole, but I guess we’ll never know.

Congratulations to the high-bidder of this amazing piece of “Pyrex Holy Grail!” Please take lots of pics so we can live vicariously through you! :-)

    $662?!?!?!

    Wow. I know it’s rare, and it’s awfully cute, but I’d NEVER pay that much for it. But now I know…if I’m ever “lucky” enough to come across one I’ll make bank ;-) I wouldn’t sell much of my Pyrex, but for $600+ I would sell a piece or two…

    Everything Heather said. Although it’s really cool to see it! :)

    Just saw a better photo of this dish posted by the winner on flickr. She said she expected to pay $200 more for it at least. I have one of these dishes and had no idea of its value. It’s absolutely precious. Thinking of selling. Will take photos for everyone.

    OMGoodness, $662 is an insane amount. I’ll spend the rest of my life looking for one of these.
    May I link this in my vintage blog at: www.vintageyall.wordpress.com?

    Thanks!

    Saw it in the wild in St. Pete Fl last year. Before I really started collecting. I said “Oh, this would be great if I decorated for St. Patty’s Day and Valentines Day all at once. ”

    Now that I have a collection of one of a kinds, in a few cases, I’m ready to sell some as well. Be on the look out for my one of a kind Space Saver - (Blue clouds Blue stars - does not have a name it was a prototype) I love it but I know someone else would love it more.

    To me the Space saver represents almost the “golden age” of Pyrex. I like to use my Pyrex and I have a hard time using anything that is so rare. Closing in on 200 pieces (not including lids) - I think I might whittle it down to about half.
