This is a vintage 1950’s set of Pyrex mixing bowls with “Easy Grip” tab handles and pouring spouts. They have raised permanent measure markings which is better than painted ones as they will never fade. The largest of the three is a 2 quart, the second is 1 1/2 pint, and the third is 1 cup. I have seen this set online somewhere in the original packaging which indicated the price then was $1.98 for the set. Obviously a long, long time ago.
These bowls are in mint condition and are priced at $65.00 for the set. Hard to come by and even harder to find ones in lovely condition.
I have booths at the Almonte Antique Market in Almonte Ontario and also in Perth at the Gore Street Antique Market. Both places are open year round and are multi vendor locations.
Those of you who followed my blog in the past may have been wondering why I have not posted anything new in a year. I changed computers and cameras at about that time and have been procrastinating about learning how to download the photos and get them on the computer. It was a very busy summer and fall and now, on the occasion of our very first snow fall, I thought it was time to get moving and figure it all out.
Here’s hoping everything works well.
More recent Pyrex bowls by Corning, ca 1990’s. The bowls were also manufactured as four piece sets in a variety of colours: Rainbow, Blue Rainbow, Brown Rainbow, Dark Green, Burgandy, Cobalt Blue, Granite (speckled), Red, Lifestyles (speckled red, blue and green) , Red and Green, Southwest (light blue, peach, pale green and pale yellow), Yellow, Winter Festival (Red with white pattern), all Black, all White, and the Black and White mixed. Many sets consisted of 4 bowls, but some were only 3 such as the one above. I gleaned this information from the Corelle Corner site: http://www.corellecorner.com/clear-pyrex-profiles/469-clear-bottom-bowls-1986.html
Pyrex produced these right after they discontinued the opal glass line of bowls. As far as I know, all these colours have been discontinued so we can classify them as vintage now. The bowls have clear bottoms and the colour is on the outside of the clear glass bowls only.
The finishes are nice and shiny and the bowls show only mininal wear on the inside.
The set will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON, just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa ON. Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm with plenty of free parking at the rear of the building. Over 50 vendors in a 2 storey brick heritage building offer a huge variety of antiques and collectibles to suit every taste.
Priced at $25 for the set.
Nice trio of JAJ Crown Pyrex gravy boats from England ca. 1960’s. JAJ stands for James A. Joblings, who was the person who acquired the license to make Pyrex in England from the Corning Co in the 1920’s. The pattern names are from top to bottom: Carnaby Tempo, Chelsea, and Harvest Vegetable. The shapes are different than the American ones and the patterns reflect the tastes of the Bristish customers. I like the colourful retro patterns. These would have originally come with underplates.
This is another Promotional item from Pyrex, with a pattern of gold coloured wheat sheaves. I checked on Pyrex Love and they have not been able to identify the pattern name yet either. It is the 2 quart rectangular Space Saver size with clear lid. It sits in a gold tone metal cradle/stand with wood handles. This dates to approx. 1960.
The dish is in excellent unused condition.
Priced at $60 due to its rarity and good condition. Comparables were found on ebay for pricing.
Please note I do not ship items. This will be availabe in my booth at the Ottawa Antique Show at the Carleton Univeristy Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th. 2014.
This is a 1.5 quart sized oval casserole dish made by Pyrex, and is probably a promotional piece. I have never seen this one before except on Pyrex Love which is my go-to source for identifying pyrex patterns. The lid is black with a dark blue Jacobean styled floral pattern on it. The bottom piece is the same dark blue. It is shown here with a cradle/stand made of gold tone metal with wood handles.
It is in very good overall condition with no scratches or damage from usage evident.
This dish is priced at $45.00.
Please note this will be availabe at the Ottawa Antique Show at the Carleton University Field House in Ottawa ON on Oct 25th and 26th. I do not ship items. Thank you.
Please note this beauty is now SOLD!!!!
Ok, here is a new one on me. I have never seen this pattern before. It is made by JAJ Pyrex in England and has white shamrocks/clover leaf pattern. It is part of a chip and dip set that would have included a smaller white opal bowl with green clover leaf pattern.
The bowl is in pretty good condition, with some wear to the surface in the way of small scratches in the finish and light wear to the inside.
Will be available soon in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.
Priced at $40
Please note: This item is now SOLD!!
Complete Pyrex Refrigerator Dish Set in the Verde pattern. Set includes four containers; two chartreuse coloured 1 1/2 cup, one avocado green 1 1/2 pint and one dark olive green 1 1/2 quart size. All have the clear ribbed glass lids. There is some confusion about Verde being the pattern name or the colour name. I always check the Pyrex Love site to see what they call the patterns and they list it as Verde, so I will go with that.
It is getting harder and harder to find complete Pyrex fridge sets in any colour combination nowadays. So I felt lucky to be able to get the whole set together.. The 2 larger pieces were on separate shelves at the store I purchased them at and it was by chance that I noticed the 2 small ones in a plastic bag hanging on a hook on the wall. They are all in very good condition, just a few very minor scratches. All the lids are in good condition as well with no major nicks on the edges.
I also have the complete Verde mixing bowl set in the Cinderella shape.
This set will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.
Priced at $ 55 for the set.
