Confession. I am a vintage Pyrex perv.
It was a slow burner this love affair and a surprising one too. A couple of years ago I bought two vintage Pyrex casserole bowls at a boot fair.
I just bought them because I liked the pattern. They cost me the princely sum of one whole pound for the two bowls, lids and a stand.
If I remember rightly, when we were packing up our own stall a lady approached me asking how much I wanted for them, thinking they were for sell! At the time I did not realise they had value and how collectible vintage Pyrex is!
I was a bit “meh” about them at first, but I thought to myself that they are better than the boring plain set of three we bought when I first moved out of home. But somehow, and unexpectedly these casserole bowls have grown on me. Now they have become one of the favourite pieces of vintage kitchenalia I own!
I really don’t understand how it happened, or the slight butterflies that I get when I see pictures of other pretty pieces of vintage Pyrex on the Internet! I am slightly embarrassed by it, after all its only a bowl to cook macaroni cheese and tuna bakes etc in….but its oh so pretty with its lovely milk glass (as they call it in America).
Milky glass makes me happy! I think I heart vintage Pyrex more than Cathrineholm!
It seems I am not the only Pyrex lover out there! Phew!
