Pyrex #90 Clear Mix Measure Bowl Set

20 Nov

20160429_172414This 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.

Pyrex Small Green Casserole in Cradle ‘Vintage Grapes’

12 Jan

green pyrex casserole

I really like this little pyrex casserole.  It sits in a transparent green plastic cradle for carrying.  The top has a grape pattern and is named, appropriately, Vintage Grapes .

This one is in very good condition, with minimal wear evident on the surfaces.  This is the first one I have found that was actually in its original plastic cradle.

Will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $18

Please note this item is now SOLD!!!

Pyrex Cinderella Mixing Bowls, Homestead Pattern

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.
