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

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

Pyrex Cups and Saucers – SOLD

Set of 6 Rigopal cups & saucers

Set of 6 Rigopal cups & saucers

I love the art deco style of these cups and saucers from Rigopal (Argentina). Rigopal manufactured a type of glass that’s similar to pyrexware in it’s durability. So not only are these cups very pleasing on the eye, but they’re also nice and hardy and not likely to break if you accidentally trip while carrying your cuppa!

Dimensions: Cups – 9cm in diameter x 7cm high; Saucers – 14.5cm in diameter

Price: R145 for the set

Large Pyrex Dish – SOLD

Large pyrex dish with lid

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

Blue Fire-King snack dish

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
