Pinks and Blues - Pyrex Love

Colder weather has been setting in here at Pyrex Love HQ in Southern Calif. With the chillier temps have come a strange increase in vintage Pyrex at the thrift stores. Not sure what the deal is, but above are just a few of the recent finds we’ve had.

First up is a Pink Daisy large oval 2.5 quart casserole (#045). This one came without the clear lid, but it was in such a nice condition that we needed to pick it up. Next was a Snowflake casserole, also an oval type, but this one had the lid (although it was chipped and damaged). This is also a smaller size 1.5 quart (#043). A nice pickup for the holidays. We were a bit surprised it wasn’t already grabbed because Xmas is around the corner.

The last was a standard size round cake pan in a Turquoise Blue color. It’s an 8 1/4 inch pan with #223. I believe these may have been sold both individually as well as part of baking sets.

    Very interesting that I found one of the Pink Daisy casseroles at a thrift store in West Covina, CA which was missing its lid also. I hope I can find an orphan lid for it. Love your website; very informative.

    Super cute. I’m heading to Cali in a couple of days- what thrift stores/ flea markets/ shopping do you recommend for Pyrex hunting? Thanks!

    Just 5 minutes ago we broke something that looks like that blue cake pan. If anyone knows of the whereabouts of one in green, I’d love to buy it (the broken one belonged to my grandmother).

    I looked under your Green heading, looking for a lime green cake pan that I found that looks exactly like your turquoise one in this picture, but you didn’t have one listed. Do you have any idea what all came in the lime green color? Or where I could find some info about it? It’s my only lime piece and I love it. And I want more, obviously, LOL.

    Hi Rhiannon - I have an ad from 1952 that features the lime green cake pan, you can see it on the oven rack on the left side of the page:
