VTT: Opal Love

Happy VTT everyone! I'm always stoked when Thrusday rolls around...what to write about? I can always
 count on my old standby...Pyrex!

So if you're already a follower you probably read Monday's post HERE! about the Red Barn and the fart faced seller!

I found one of the missing links....A small Pyrex Opal fridgie! With lid! Opal means a white Pyrex with no pattern on it.

The Opal bowl set was introduced in 1954 and had 4 bowls. The company produced them only for 2 years. I don't know about the Opal refrigerator dishes, but what I know is that they are mighty hard to find!


On the far left you can see the new addition, next to it is the medium fridgie. In the back are the 401 and 402.

Part of the Pyrex urban legend is that the largest fridgie doesn't exist. I have never seen one in person, on Flickr or Pyrex Love....Prove me wrong and let me find one!

I couldn't help myself! Another shot of delicious Pyrex Opaliciousness!

Here are more pics taken inside the Red Barn in Hudson, Qc home of the fart face seller.


OOoohh! Melmac!

Le Creuset and assorted cast iron

Assorted Glassware

Need a toaster??? We got toasters!

Chairs,chairs and more chairs....

And guess what? More chairs!

I hope you enjoyed this little tour! Be sure to visit the so delightful Suzanne from Colorado Lady
for more vintage joy!

OMG am drooling over all the pyrex (yet again!) and wouldn't that white look lovely on a summery table? It's so cool and soft looking. I missed the fartfaced seller post, lol gotta go read that now!

It is interesting that the white is rare. I would have thought it would be more common than colors.

How big is the big fridgie. My mom may have one.

Glad you found another one of the white ones. ~ Sarah

Fund finds, I love learning about this stuff. I may have to check this place out the next time I get to Montreal.

OH Von Lip, How I LOVE your Pyrex :)

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Wow! Tons of great vintage thingies. See that yellow cast iron with little folk people on them? My mom has those in perfect condition. How fun to see these since I've only seen them in my mom's kitchen.

The Crazy Suburban Mom said...

I've never ever seen white - or opal... man. And those chairs, oh I want those chairs. wow. I always look in thrift stores for chairs like that.

My heart raced when I saw all that Le Creuset and Descoware! I believe I have an Opal White cinderella tabbed mixing bowl... Is this something you've come across Vonlipi?
