Retro Tuesday: Tardy but with Pyrex!!!


Yes I'm late. I was feeling under the weather and very lazy. I'm still in pijamas! LOL!

So today for Retro Tuesday I give you this beautiful and elusive Pyrex ad. It comes from the Ladies Home Journal. My guess is, it dates from 1960. How do I know that?
Every Pyrex nut know to go to the Pyrex Love web site for info and to drool on those beautiful pictures... www.pyrexlove.com
The only piece I have in this ad is the delphite veggie casserole on the bottom. The rest is still to be acquired...
I got this ad from eBay to match my kitchen and I must say it fits beautifully!
Pyrex ads are pretty rare to find in vintage magazines and I find that the Pyrex pieces were pretty expensive back in the day so the demographics targeted must've been higher than the Creamettes....For more on that do yourself a favor and visit www.crazysuburbanmom.com for more magazine demographics....
Have a great evening!

Never thought about vintage adds for my kitchen! I love Pyrex! I don't have much but my collection is growing.

Linda said...

Did you buy the entire magazine or just that page from eBay?

Linda, I only bought the page. it came very well packaged. Let me know if you want the name of the vendor, I think I kept it. ;)

I have the blue and white dish (without the lid)in the center. I think it is called the Meadows pattern. How cool to see it in print from back in the day.

Wow, thats a great ad and I've never seen one like it. Actually I've never seen one. A few glasbake - one or two tupperware but never pyrex - that's fabulous. Wow. I'm drooling now... I'm bowing to your pyrexosity which apparently extends to ads too!

I am now looking at Pyrex in a whole new light. This sent me scurrying to the cupboard. I have an old pyrex casserole that I bought 2nd hand about 18 years ago - made in USA then I remembered I'd bought a gravy boat a few years ago which very rarely gets used for gravy but holds the garlic bulbs. I've only just noticed its the same pattern as the casserole but its not stamped Pyrex and is made in England. Whats a good web site for finding out more about pyres

PS: I'm in Australia

Found this very informative site when I was checking out Pyrex, found out the gravy boat is JAJhttp://www.retrowow.co.uk/retro_products/kitchen/pyrex.php.

You really have a big assortment of Pyrex. That is one dish that is always handy to use. You did well on your shopping too.
