VTT: Pyrex Refrigerator Dishes
Happy VTT everyone! I'm working extra hard this week and was not planning on joining the VTT fun. However in order to make it easier on me, I decided to go through my Pyrex pic file...and found these beauties....
This is the first refrigerator set produced by Pyrex in the 40s. You got 2 small red one, a larger blue one and a big yellow one. I didn't find this set as is; each piece I found individualy over a period of 2 years.
This is the Butterprint pattern. It is one of the most sought after pattern. I was really lucky on that one. I found it almost complete (missing one small) in Maine for 7.50$. SCORE!
Those were a gift from Dad! You know I love aqua. Pyrex calls this color Turquoise.
Beautiful mid-century set!
Sigh! Lovely canadian Delphite. Thank you Pyrex for making this heavenly blue and only here in Canada!
The blue lids were only made for a small period of time because they were not as practical as clear ones. The one with the lid on the table I got at the Lachute flea market for 1$ and the vendor actually look releaved I was taking this god awful thing off his hands!
This is a mixed up set. It is made of some Town & Country (small orangey tan), Verde (small greenish yellow), the medium one and the largest are (but I'm not sure) part of the Daisy set. Some were gifts, some found. I like all their sunshiny hues!
I remember posting this pic in Flickr and got some comments i had too many red ones....Well none of your beeswax! But during the big 2009 de-clutter fest, I started closely looking at the HUGE amount of Pyrex in the house and had a bloggy giveaway and sent 2 of these cuties to some of my readers.
That's it for today. Do visit Suzanne @ Colorado Lady for some nice Thursday social and more VTT!
