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

Pair of Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

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

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

Pyrex Nesting Bowls – SOLD

10 Apr

Corning Pyrex nesting bowls

Corning Pyrex nesting bowls

It’s fairly unusual to come across a set of pyrex nesting bowls these days, and even more unusual to find a set of Corning Pyrex* bowls, so I jumped at the chance to buy this set! The colour, which is more of a buttercup yellow than the bright yellow that it appears in the photos, isn’t super exciting, but that’s more than compensated for by the condition of the bowls, and the fact that the set’s complete.

A very charming set of mixing bowls in excellent condition.

*The Pyrex brand was first introduced by Corning Incorporated in 1915.

NB: These bowls are not as large as you might expect, so please pay attention to the dimensions below.

Dimensions: Large bowl – 10cm tall x 22.5cm in diameter; Medium bowl – 9cm tall x 18.5cm in diameter; Small bowl – 8.5cm tall x 14.5cm in diameter

Price: R250 for the set

JAJ Pyrex Dishes – SOLD

26 Mar

Pair of JAJ pyrex dishes

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
