Glasbake Mixing Bowls – SOLD

19 May

Pair of Glasbake mixing bowls

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

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

29 Apr

Anchor Hocking pie dish

Anchor Hocking pie dish

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

Pair of Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

Pair of retro pyrex bowls

I’ve always love this pyrexware pattern – it reminds me of some of the mad kitchen tiles that people had on their walls when I was a kid! The bowls don’t have a maker’s mark and aren’t quite the same quality of JAJ or Fire-King pyrexware, but they’ve lasted this long (probably in the region of fifty years or so), so they’ve got to be pretty strong!

A cool (and super handy!) pair of medium-sized pyrex bowls in near perfect condition.

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 17cm in diameter x 10cm tall

Price: R120 for the pair

Small Pyrex Dish – SOLD

Small Phoenix pyrex dish with lid

Small Phoenix pyrex dish with lid

This retro Phoenix dish isn’t particularly large, but it’s still one of my favourite pyrex dishes! Don’t you just love that pattern, and how cool are those handles? Seriously! The dish isn’t as good a quality as some of the other vintage pyrexware that I’ve sold, but it’s in good nick and is so lovely to look at!

Dimensions: 18cm in diameter x 9cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R140
