VTT: Vintage is the way to go!

What is this? What could that be??? Interesting box, vintage,colorful... Could it be? Pyrex? Be still, my beating heart!
Yes it's the Vintage casserole with cradle by Pyrex. It is a promotional casserole. Nothing is known about the year of production, my guess is late 60's early 70's. I got it through eBay in my NIB (new in box ) phase. even if the seller described the box as mint, it arrived all taped up and even had wrapping paper stuck on the box! When I complained about it, I was told it was my imagination, I was exaggerating! I left a real bad feedback!


But I must say the casserole is adorable....With it's little green cradle.





And it came with use and care instructions! Happy VTT to all! Be sure to visit Suzanne at www.coloradolady.blogspot.com for more VTT fun!

Omg, thats fabulous! Ive never seen anything like it! Now the box and the word mint - yeah. I dunno does it smell minty or something? sheesh.... Mint, the most overused word on ebay (to quote myself)... I dont get why people do that but whatever. Its a fabulous find. I can't believe how beauteous!

That looks unusual. I wonder why they called it vintage. Obviously that person doesn't know what mint means.

I agree the box is not mint. However, the dish is fabulous and the colours are lovely.

I've never seen one with the carrier. Wonderful color.

I just received some vintage bed sheet pieces from ebay. While most of the fabric was bed sheets, there were several pieces that were not. Oh well.

I've never seen a holder like that - it's so cool! By the way, I love your Henry - that's my Mister's first name, but he goes by his middle name!

Wonderful!! The box may have been taped up but the casserole looks in mint condition! Love the vintage graphics and oh that green!
