My brother is a great cook, and has a kitchen full of beautiful enamel and pyrex dishes, roasters, great big cast-iron pots – practically all the bits and bobs you’d ever need. But over the years he’s had a bit of a tendency to buy anything and everything pretty that he saw, whether he needed it or not. So over the holidays he did a bit of a clean out and these two great JAJ pyrex dishes landed on my doorstep – yay! Now neither of them are in what you’d call ‘mint’ (cheeky grin) condition. The yellow dish in particular has quite a few scratches, but I think any wear and tear is more than made up for by those great colours that really do pop! Plus, it’s so unusual to find a pyrex dish with its original lid, especially one with such great style (I love that rounded bubble shape!). A great pair that will look fantastic on a table together – I hope they go to the same home – it would be a real shame to see them parted!
Dimensions: Yellow dish – 11cm tall (with lid on) x 17cm wide x 27cm long; Red dish – 7cm tall x 19cm wide x 28cm long
Price: Yellow dish – R130; Red dish – R90
