VTT: Vintage Pyrex Ad

Welcome to another edition of VTT! The thrusday social always make me feel happy and light!

Be sure to visit Suzanne from Colorado Lady for more VTT glory!

When I saw this in Etsy I couldn't help myself, I had to have it!



White and Turquoise a wining combination! And I was glad to discover pieces I had never seen before. Like the clear S&P with the turquoise top, the beverage server with it's rack, and the cradle for white round casserole at left (Frost Garland). I have no idea from which magazine it came from....and no year. However the Turquoise Snowflake was introduced in 1957 and the Frost Garland casserole was introduced in 1962, so my guess is winter 1962.

Let the hunt begin! I have some new pieces to find! Tally Ho!

It is interesting what goes around comes around. I am surprised at how much interest and buying of Pyrex has become. I know what I have seen in antique stores, it is very expensive

Tara Beaulieu said...

Oooh, more turquoise Pyrex to add to my hunting adventures! I hope you frame that ad and put it up in your kitchen. It's lovely! :) Happy VTT!

Pam said...

Wow, that is a great ad. I love the turquoise Pyrex.

Maureen said...

I just saw a pepper shaker that was shaped just like them. It had a pink top. I wish I had checked to see if it was marked!

Terrific ad! I remember those lovely coffee pot/servers!

Postcardy said...

I would like to find some Pyrex ads. I wish the sellers would say what magazines they are from.

Sue said...

Oh you DO have a penchant for Pyrex, don't you? I loved looked back at your old posts. You're the kind of person I'd like to go thrifting with! We'd be out for hours. Wait-I do that already... but company would be nice. All my pals want to bag it after an hour or so. I, on the other hand, could go all day. LOL
Thanks for visiting from Suzanne's. I need to get going tonight and see what everyone else is showing.

The ad is totally cool. I agree with another commenter you should frame it for display in your kitchen. The turquoise pyrex is lovely.

Love it, girl. It makes me want to make a casserole and entertain my friends with beautifully presented food.
How do you find this stuff?

P.S. I've got the "I Found Someone" video up on my blog. More eighties gold LOL.
