Ah, hello there Pyrex fans! Sorry we haven’t updated in a while, it’s mostly because our Pyrex collecting has slowed down quite a lot over the past year. There is only so much room in our house, and most of you know that Pyrex takes up a lot of space. We’ve also slowed down because (is this possible?>) we’re pretty much running out of pieces we want to collect. After so many years of collecting, we no longer just pick up every piece of Pyrex we see. We are now passing up minty pieces if the pattern is common, can you believe it?> Now we are getting more selective and are only picking up harder-to-find pieces. Like this Embroidery cinderella bowl!
Embroidery has been on my want list for many years - it’s not super rare, but I just didn’t want to pay retail/antique store price for it. Finally found one in great condition at a reasonable price recently. Introduced in 1958, it was a promotional #443 bowl that came with a cradle and lid. We found just the bowl. Embroidery is such a lovely pattern, if I ever see the Embroidery black-on-yellow spacesaver, I will definitely jump on it!
Another recent find is this Balloons cinderella bowl, a 1958 promotional item (1958 was a great year!). It’s actually a Chip & Dip set - we have the “chip,” the larger #444 chip bowl. The “dip” is a #441 which holds 1.5 pints. It also comes with the elusive brass bracket which I personally think is harder to find in the wild than the bowls themselves!
Even though we’re not adding to our collection as much as before, we still enjoy seeing the excitement of other Pyrex fans. We encourage you to join the Pyrex Love community over at Flickr or sign up with our new and improved Facebook page. Thanks for stopping by!
