Various Finds - Pyrex Love

We’ve had a bit of luck with some of the promos recently at the thrifts. Funny, most of what we’ve found has been green or olive green in color - so I had to also throw in the two red refrigerator dishes into the picture to liven things up. =) We already have these, but they were impossible to pass up at 50 cents a piece.

The Zodiac promotional casserole definitely wasn’t as cheap, but I had to get it because it came complete with the base candle warmer. We already have a zodiac casserole, so we might be giving that away as a gift next Holiday season.

We also came across a Bride’s Promotional casserole without it’s cover or base. While some people might think the design on this one is a bit boring with just monochromatic green, we like the different flowers and decoration on it.

    I’ve always thought the Bride’s Promotional casserole was very nice, youthful, and full of life. Just like a Bride.

    Green and olive green were popular (as was orange) back when I was a bride in 1982. And it was popular in the 70’s. I wonder if the color held up best to repeated washing and heat, or if someone in design just liked that color? I personally prefer the turquoise/robin’s egg blue colors.

    Hi,
    Is there any place to find measurements on pyrex? I have acquired one of the flat clear glass lids like these round casseroles have or had, but I have no idea what size casserole I ought to be looking for to fit it.
    Thanks!
