How sweet are these jade Fire-King mixing bowls? I love the colour – it’s such a classic colour for vintage kitchenalia – and the swirls in the glass make it extra special! There are one or two small marks that show up as specks of white (see pics under ‘more’), but on the whole the bowls are in good nick for their years!

Dimensions: Medium bowl – 18cm in diameter x 8.5cm tall; Small bowl – 15.5cm in diameter x 7cm tall

Price: R140 for the pair

JAJ Pyrex Gravy Boat – SOLD

30 Jun

While I can definitely appreciate the beauty of a fine piece of china, my personal taste is a bit more rugged, preferring pyrex over porcelain! And this JAJ Pyrex gravy boat with matching saucer is a great example of why I love pyrexware so much! For one it’s generally much more durable and hardwearing than porcelain, and secondly, and most importantly, the patterns are generally much funkier! with its stylised pattern and bright orange and blue flowers, this gravy boat is right up my street!

Note: There’s a minor mark near the spout, but otherwise the jug and saucer are both in great condition.

Dimensions: Gravy boat – 19cm long x 8.5cm wide x 7cm tall; Saucer – 20cm long x 15cm wide

Price: R125

Glasbake Mixing Bowls – SOLD

19 May

These Glasbake mixing bowls would have originally been sold with a 1950s Sunbeam mixer, which sadly must have bitten the dust a while ago, but the dishes are great quality and are still in excellent nick – there’s barely a mark on them! Both bowls would obviously work well as mixing bowls, but you could also use the larger bowl for salad or pasta. My veggie sister has the same large Glasbake bowl and she uses it all the time for her wonderful salads!

Dimensions: Large bowl – 24cm in diameter x 12cm tall; Medium bowl – 17cm in diameter x 12cm tall

Price: Large bowl – R130; Medium bowl – R90

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…)

Fire-King Pyrex Dish – SOLD

11 May

Retro Fire-King dish

Retro Fire-King dish

How great is the colour of this Fire-King oven dish?! It reminds me a lot of the Le Creuset flame design, but is probably even a bit more intense! There’s a bit of wear to the paintwork that’s not visible in the photos, but on the whole it’s not in bad condition for its years.

This is a very striking piece of cookware that can go straight from your oven to your dining room table – provided that you have a nice retro trivet to protect your tabletop!

Price: R130

Daisy Pyrex Dish – SOLD

30 Apr

 JAJ Pyrex 'Daisy' dish

JAJ Pyrex ‘Daisy’ dish

This is probably one of the more expensive pyrex dish that I’ve sold, but they’ve become so popular in recent years that they really are hard to come by – especially this 1950s daisy patten, which was pretty rare to begin with! The dish is in good condition for its age, but there’s some staining on the underside of the one handle that we can’t seem to get rid of (see pics under ‘more’). It’s nothing major though – in fact you can’t see it unless you pick the dish up and look underneath – not advisable once it’s filled with some freshly cooked veggies!

Dimensions: 29cm long (incl. handles) x 18cm wide x 9.5cm tall (incl. lid)

Price: R160

Pyrex Pie Dish – SOLD

This pyrex Anchor Hocking pie dish isn’t quite the same quality as the Corning Ware versions, but it’s still very sweet, and is just crying out for somebody with a bit more talent than me to make a scrumptious pie or quiche in it!

Dimensions: 5cm tall x 23cm in diameter

Price: R110
