JAJ Pyrex Dishes – SOLD

Pair of JAJ pyrex dishes

I probably should have walked away from this pink JAJ Pyrex dish, but they’re so hard to come by these days that I thought that it was worth trying to save. You see it was in need of a serious scrub – the type of scrub that takes you a good day or two to do (soak, scrub, soak, scrub!). But even with all of our efforts there are still some signs of wear left over – some of the marks wouldn’t come clean, and others were caused by our scrubbing. It’s definitely clean enough to use now, and when you stack it with other pyrex dishes you don’t really notice the marks, but by itself the wear is definitely visible.

The yellow snowflake dish is the complete opposite – barely a mark on it! It’s not as deep as the daisy dish, but it’s sometimes handy to have smaller dishes for when you’re cooking for less people. We have an assortment of these pyrex dishes in our kitchen and use all of them all of the time – not only are they great for doing veggies in the microwave (or for taking meat off the braai), but they’re a great feature in our kitchen – the different colours and patterns are really striking!

NB: The daisy dish is a much softer pink than it appears in the photos (it almost looks red in the pics, but it’s definitely pink!).

Dimensions: Pink daisy dish – 29cm long (incl. handles) x 17cm wide x 6.5cm deep; Yellow snowflake dish – 29cm long (incl. handles) x 17cm wide x 4.5cm deep

Price: R210 for the pair

Pyrex Bowls with Lids – SOLD

Vintage pyrex bowls with lids

Vintage pyrex bowls with lids

You don’t come across them that often, but I have had a few of these lidded pyrex bowls for sale before – although I’m pretty sure I’ve never had a full set of them (I don’t think that I even realised that they came in sets!). There’s no maker’s mark to be found, so I think they were probably fairly cheaply produced, but I just love the bright red and yellow flowers, and the lids (which are designed to double up as bowls) are a fun quirky feature!

A lovely set of vintage bowls in near mint condition.

Note: Please pay attention to the dimensions below – these aren’t the largest bowls.

Dimensions: Large bowl – 19cm in diameter x 13cm tall; Medium bowl – 16cm in diameter x 12cm tall; Small bowl – 14cm in diameter x 10cm tall (with lids on)

Price: R210 for the set

Pyrex Coffee Percolator – SOLD

19 Feb

Pyrex coffee percolator

This pyrex coffee percolator is missing the strange little metal triangle that allows you to use it on an electric stove (they’re nearly always missing!), but it will work just fine on a gas hob. Plus if you’re in desperate need of a cup of tea when the lights go out (as they’re prone to do these days), you can always remove the percolator parts and use it as a kettle to boil your water – we use an electric kettle most of the time, but I’m always super grateful for my pyrex teapot when Eskom decides to go on holiday!

Dimensions: 18cm tall x 14cm in diameter

Price: R200

Arcopal Cups and Saucers – SOLD

18 Feb

Vintage 'Opale' Arcopal cups & saucers

Vintage ‘Opale’ Arcopal cups & saucers

Aren’t these are the prettiest little cups and saucers?! I’ve had one or two of these 1950s Arcopal ‘Opale’ sets before, but I don’t think that I’ve come across a complete set in such perfect condition – there are one or two scratches to the gold trim, but otherwise this set is in excellent nick! The name ‘Opale’ refers to the opalescence of the glass, which is the softest shades of pastel. The Opale range was launched in 1958 – according to their company history Arcopal were the first to automate the production of this opaque ‘opal’ glass. So, so lovely!

P.S. These cups really are petite! Please pay attention to the dimensions below.

Dimensions: Cups – 7cm in diameter x 4cm tall; Saucers – 11cm in diameter

Price: R220 for the set

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog (more…)

Glasbake Lidded Dishes – SOLD

Pair of Glasbake meatloaf dishes

Pair of Glasbake meatloaf dishes

I couldn’t believe it when I spotted these Glasbake meatloaf dishes the other day! I’ve only ever sold two sets of them before, and one set was last week! As with the previous Glasbake dishes, this pair are in excellent condition, although the one dish does have two small chips (see pics under ‘more’). I didn’t notice the damage when I first looked at them, so it’s not too serious.

A very hardy and fairly collectible pair of pyrex dishes that will look great sitting on your dining room table filled with some steaming veggies, or a nut-based meat loaf (much more appealing than the carnivorous version!).

Dimensions: Each dish measures 20cm long x 13cm wide x 13cm high (with lid on)

Price: R130 each

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog (more…)

Glasbake Lidded Dishes – SOLD

Retro Glasbake dishes with lids

Retro Glasbake dishes with lids

I’ve only ever come across these Glasbake loaf dishes once before, and I remember being surprised when I did my research that they’re referred to as refrigerator dishes – they don’t look like something that would come standard with a fridge do they? Although can you just imagine how cool that fridge would be! They’re also called meatloaf dishes, which makes more sense given their shape, but I suppose that you could use them for anything really. I love the thick white glass, and of course the lids with those fabulous fin-shaped handles are the real stars!

An unusual (and very cool!) set of dishes in mint condition.

Dimensions: Each dish measures 20cm long x 13cm wide x 13cm high (with lid on)

Price: R130 each
