Large Pyrex Dish – SOLD

Large pyrex dish with lid

This pyrex dish is in excellent condition and is nice and large so you could do some serious cooking with it! I can’t believe how pricey my much-loved pyrexware has become recently – a few years ago I could pick up pyrex pieces relatively cheaply, but now even auction houses are selling them for more than I do, which makes it hard to get stock! Clearly someone’s cottoned on to how great these dishes are – but I’ll keep hunting and hopefully find more treasures like this great big dish! There’s no maker’s mark on it, so I don’t think that it’s a top quality piece, but it’s attractive enough, has it’s original lid, and is near perfect nick – what more could you ask for!

Dimensions: 33cm long x 23cm wide x 13cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R150

Blue Fire-King Snack Dish – SOLD

I’ve always thought that this Fire-King design has a serious Indian feel to it – it’s definitely very differently to most Pyrexware that you come across! It comes in white and gold, and blue* and gold, and I don’t think I have to say which is my favourite! There’s some slight wear to the gold trim, but otherwise this snack dish is in excellent condition.

A beautifully kitsch piece of vintage pyrexware.

*The blue glass is called azurite.

Dimensions: 28cm long x 19cm wide x 3.5cm high

Price: R120

This JAJ Pyrex dish is in great nick – not only is the dish itself pretty clean, but the lid is free from damage and the beautifully kitsch  rose pattern is nice and bold!

A wonderful bit of cookware that can go straight from your oven or microwave onto your dinner table.

They’re probably not to everyone’s taste, but I’ve always liked the design on these retro pyrex bowls! I like the fact that the illustration is so stylised – even if the subject matter is a wee bit bizarre – but I suppose it’s in keeping with the cooking theme, and I love the orange and white combo! Both bowls seem to be in excellent condition, with very few signs of wear.

A practical and good looking pair of bowls that will look great sitting on your kitchen shelf when they’re not hard at work!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 17cm in diameter x 10cm tall; Small bowl – 14cm in diameter x 8.5cm tall

Price: R110 for the pair

JAJ Pyrex Custard Bowls – SOLD

I don’t think I can even begin to tell you how much I love this set of JAJ Pyrex custard bowls!! I mean really – wee pyrex bowls that sit in a convenient metal tray to be dropped into a pan of water to make delicious custard – my dream come true (I love me a bit of hot custard!), but more than that they’re just really, really beautiful! The colours are fantastic, the ridges give them great style, and then you have the metal tray – it may be a bit worn, but it definitely adds some interest to the set! Most sites describes these as custard bowls, but I’ve seen an original JAJ Pyrex box which called them ‘baking’ bowls, so I suppose you could use them for anything really – in addition to my love of custard, I’m a really big fan of a good chocolate fondant – do you see where I’m going with this?

A most wonderful bit of vintage kitchenalia that almost made me wish I knew how to bake!

P.S. I really struggled to find any of these sets for sale online, but I did see a boring ivory coloured Fire King set for sale on Etsy for a whopping $85!

Dimensions: Each dish measures 6cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter; Rack measures 30cm long x 15cm wide x 8cm tall

Price: R220
