Delphite..the name alone makes Pyrex collectors swoon!
I know I get weak in the knees whenever I see some....
Not a lot is know about these pieces made in Canada. I believe there was a plant in Ontario established in 1945.
They manufactured the complete pie crust dish set. A bowl set, a refrigerator set. Of the refrigerator set I have only seen the small and the medium ones. Never seen the large one-does it exist?
The pieces don't have the same feel, thickness. I must admit that even if I use all my pieces I'm a bit more scared to drop them than the other Pyrex...I don't know why
In the first pic you can see the vegetable bowl, 4 salad bowls, the casserole and the square bottom bowl.
Here's a close up of the elusive square bottom bowl...I have seen it at really crazy prices on ebay. I got a real good deal on it from a Pyrex acquaintance...
Even if the pieces are more plentiful than in the U.S. they are quite rare nonetheless....and cheap rare still!
