Large Fire-King Batter Jug – SOLD

Fire-King pyrex mixing jug

I’ve always loved these over-sized 1950s Fire-King pyrex jugs! I have to say, I love the jade version even more, but I definitely wasn’t going to turn my nose up at a plain white version, especially given how seldom they come up for sale! I love how large they are – they make for a smallish bowl, but a really large jug (if you know what I mean?). This version is in pretty decent nick, with only a few marks here and there – for its age I think it’s nice and clean.

A great accessory for any aspiring cooks out there. This would make the perfect pancake bowl – just mix and pour!

Dimensions: 19.5cm in diameter (at its widest) x 10cm tall

Price: R120

Small Pyrex Dish with Lid – SOLD

7 Oct

Vintage pyrex bowl

There’s no maker’s mark on this small pyrex bowl, so it’s probably of the cheap and cheerful variety, but it’s such a sweet shape and I love that brightly colored floral pattern! Plus it’s a clever little design with the lid doubling as a second dish, and it’s in pretty good nick for its years. A simple, but utterly delightful bowl that I suspect will be surprisingly handy around the kitchen.

Dimensions: 16cm in diameter x 12cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R85

Pyrex Nesting Bowls – SOLD

Nesting pyrex bowls

I think I’ve only ever seen JAJ Pyrex nesting mixing bowls – I’ve definitely never come across a French version before! Produced by Sovirel who were taken over by Corning in the 1970s, these bowls are in the classic ‘Cinderella’ shape, with one side of the bowl designed to be used as a handle, and the other as a pouring spout. The bowls are in great condition, although they do have some marks caused by a spoon scratching against the inside of the bowls. The white is actually an off-white (it almost has a very soft pink hue to it), and the glass (or pyrex) is of a great quality – in fact I’d say that it’s probably a slightly superior product to the JAJ Pyrex bowls.

A great set of mixing bowls that will pack away neatly when you’re not using them.

Dimensions: Large bowl – 22cm in diameter x 10cm tall; Medium bowl – 18.5cm in diameter x 9cm tall; Small bowl – 15cm in diameter x 8cm tall

Price: R260 for the set

Pyrex Espresso Cups – SOLD

Rigopal espresso cups & saucers

Ooh, I really like these Rigopal espresso cups! They’re obviously very plain, but that’s what I like about them – that and the fact that the white is so white, and that being made of toughened glass they’re likely to be a bit hardier than your average cup and saucer. Plus they’re in mint condition and won’t break the bank! What more could you ask for!

Note: One set of 6 cups & saucers available, and one set of 4 cups & saucers

Dimensions: Each cup measures – 6.5cm in diameter x 4cm tall; Each saucer measures 11cm in diameter

Price: R120 set of 6 cups & saucers; R80 set of 4 cups & saucers

Pyrex Soup Bowls – SOLD

18 Sep

Set of 5 pyrex soup bowls

Set of 5 pyrex soup bowls

You don’t often see pyrex soup bowls, so I was delighted to find this lot! Not only are they very attractive – I like the sweet floral pattern – but they’re also hard wearing, not likely to break easily and can go in the oven in case you need your soup bowls to double as souffle dishes! There’s a chip on the one handle and the pattern is a bit worn on some of the dishes, but other than that (and the fact that there are only five bowls, not six) they’re not in too bad a nick!

Dimensions:13cm in diameter x 4.5cm deep x 19cm long (incl. handle)

Price: R130 for the set of 5

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

Striped Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

You can’t really go wrong with these striped pyrex bowls – they’re great to look at, are a decent size so can be used for anything from a salad to a pasta dish, and are in reasonably good nick. Sadly there are a few slight chips along the rim of the bowls, and one of the red stripes has a bit of damage, but I think for their years their condition is fair.

A classic pair of pyrex bowls that will fit in with any modern kitchen scheme.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 19cm in diameter x 12cm tall

Price: R70 each/R130 for the pair
