Pyrex Flamingo Dinnerware 1950’s

18 Mar


Introduced by Pyrex in 1953 and discontinued in 1957, this pattern colour is called Flamingo and has a gold trim on all the pieces.   It  sure makes for a colourful display when the table is all laid out with these dishes.  Shown is one place setting.  I have 10 complete place settings altogether.

Will be for sale at my booth in Almonte Ontario, at the Almonte Antique Market.

4 place settings will be $50.

Please note: All these dishes are now SOLD!!

Corningware Cornflower Petite Bowls in Original Box

20 Jan


Found at my local thrift store, a set of four  Cornflower  ‘petite bowls’  by Corning ware, in the original box.  I was a little surprised that there weren’t any lids to go with them.   Usually they have plastic snap on lids.  Great small size for leftovers.  These have been SOLD.

Pyrex Cinderella Mixing Bowls, Homestead Pattern

20 Jan


Found these two pyrex bowls at a local thriftstore in excellent condition.  These are the two larger bowls of the set of four.    Homestead was manufactured by Pyrex in 1976 and unlike the other sets of bowls,  this pattern does not alternate colours.  All  the bowls in the set are the same pattern of dark  blue on a speckled tan background, designed by artist Estelle Rothstein, and it was last available in 1980. Pyrex dropped the name Cinderella from their ads and packaging by the mid 1960’s but many of us Pyrex enthusiasts still refer to the shape by this name.

Priced individually and for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Pyrex Cinderella Mixing Bowls Greens and Brown

13 Dec


These bowls do not really go together but the colours do suit each other.

A kind visitor to my blog explained that this set is a combination of two different sets: Verde and Town and Country. Thanks for the info!!  I am now trying to put together the two sets before selling them.

Butterprint Pyrex bowls

Rarely found orange Butterprint Pyrex bowls

Unusual orange colour for this popular Pyrex  Butterprint/Amish pattern.  I have never seen the colour before one of my fellow vendors in the market brought these in.  Unlike the other Pyrex Cinderella style bowls, these do not alternate with a solid colour.

Thanksgiving dinner dishes

Amazing pumpkin decorated dishes from the 60’s

Pyrex casseroles and assorted items from my stock were pulled together to serve Thanksgiving dinner. The lovely set of  decorated dishes are made by Island Worcester in Jamaica and all hand painted with what looks like apples. I thought they were pumpkins but they have a stem and leaf like an apple.  The pattern was designed by the famous Vera Neumann.   Orange pyrex oval casserole dishes are from the Friendship pattern series.  The dark brown and caramel coloured oval divided dish is the Old Orchard pattern.  Amber glass goblets are by Indiana Glass Co. in the Mount Vernon pattern from the 60’s.  Etched amber wine glasses are also from the 60’s.  Assorted bakelite handled utensils complement the dishes and all are layed out on a vintage 60’s rooster tablecloth.
