Pyrex Picture Day

April 10, 2011

Pyrex Barbed Wire and Pink Daisy

I’ve been waiting for a sunny day to take pictures of my Pyrex collection and today was perfect. It feels like forever since Pittsburgh has seen a day this nice, long enough for me to forget about the loud motorcycle gangs that roam the summer streets, ruining my peace and quiet.

Pyrex Clover Berry

This pattern is known as Clover Berry. I’d never seen it before when I saw this dish at a flea market last year but I loved it immediately. It’s not an easy piece to find and it’s my pride and joy.

Pyrex Glass Bowl

I bought this glass bowl on Saturday at an antique mall. I’m not sure if the lid is original but it came with it and I find it charming.

Pyrex Balloons

The Balloons pattern is what first drew me to vintage Pyrex and this large Cinderella bowl was my very first purchase, sometime in my first year or two of college.

Pyrex Carafe

This is my first carafe and first glass piece. The poor guy lost a good bit of gold leaf when I removed the masking tape that bound the carafe and candle warmer together. Thrift stores can be so cruel.

Check out the rest here.

    Being the huge Pyrex fan that I am, I really enjoyed this post. I also realized that I have more than the green Pyrex. I might even have a better collection than you.

      Oh my, that’s quite the statement, Timmy D. What other patterns do you have? There’s a pattern reference here. I’m dying to know.

        also another one of those green ones with leaves mixed in with the flowers.

    also some more of the green with the flowes, although there’s more flowers and leaves mixed in with them.

      So you have Spring Blossom 1 and 2 and Snowflake? How many pieces and what sizes are they?

    I realize I’m late to the party here, commenting on a 2-year-old post, but: yes, the brass lid on your Pyrex 323 bowl is original. There’s also a candle warmer that’s part of that set. Your “balloons” Cinderella bowl was part of a chip-and-dip set that included a smaller (dip) bowl and a metal bracket to hold them together. And now you’ll go crazy trying to find the missing pieces! Sorry. :)

    Will you sell any of your pieces?
