Vintage Pyrex

A while back I decided that I wanted to get some vintage kitchen things to put on a shelf that I have above my breakfast nook window. I wasn't quite sure what though. I have and love my old canning jars (especially the blue ones and the ones with the wire bail) so I wanted something that would look good with those. Today I think I found it. We were out shopping and saw a little antique mall so we stopped in. One booth had some vintage Pyrex in excellent condition. I knew it was collectible because I'd seen some on some of the quilt blogs I visit. I thought it would look really pretty on the shelf (although I'm beginning to think I need to display these at eye level instead). Here's my big find-I think they are pretty common pieces but I love 'em anyway.

This covered dish is 1 qt

This bowl is 1.5 qts

This bowl (probably my favorite of the 3) is 1.5 pts

If anyone has any information on these, please feel free to share.

Gale, I can't tell you how HUGE I smiled today! I grew up with these! Mom would have them on the table almost every night heeped with different dishes ~ I don't have any information on them but do recognize them and thank you for the walk down memory lane! xx0o

oooo I love those. I bet they'll add quite the flair on your shelf. Are you going to use them??? That'd be fun too.

We have the top piece in green and that bowl in the middle. I feel like I need to hit up my dad and have him send it to me before he gets rid of them.

I'm looking for vintage sheets.

The last one is my favorite too, I have the large bowl in it and saw a whole set for 39.95 yesterday, I had to tear myself away from them because I'm on a **yuck** budget!

The print is called Butterprint <3

So pretty! I remember some of these pieces being in the house when I was a little girl.

We had something very similar to the first one when I was growing up.
What a cute collection.

They're so pretty and think you found some great pieces!

this is so cool, I have never seen vintage pyrex before. I think I am going to have to start hanging out at second hand shops.
