Pink Pyrex Ovenware

I found this pink 2 quart ovenware piece at the Goodwill this morning.  There aren't any chips, but the finish looks a little faded to me.  From looking on the internet this appears to be a pink Flamingo piece.  If that isn't correct please let me know.  It was pink and $1.25 so I couldn't pass it up.
UPDATE: Thank you Beth for letting me know that this is a Desert Dawn piece.  I love the speckling but thought it was because of fading. lol
They also had this set of 5 Butterfly Gold tea cups.  No saucers, but I'll find them someday.  They were $4.25 for the five.

I've asked family and friends to keep an eye out for me too.  I'm building my own little Pyrex posse. lol


  1. It is a desert dawn pink. It has flecks in the color....so it isn't faded, it is just right! :)
    I always think the butterfly gold cups are so cute!

  3. Oh thank you Beth. It does have flecks in it. The tea cups are so dainty. I'm use to the massive ceramic mugs I use.

  4. From this photo it looks more like it's dishwasher damaged. Sometimes they look their colour without losing the shine. Desert Dawn looks like there's sand in the colour - little brown flecks and the pink isn't flamingo, it's softer. Here's a good example - http://www.flickr.com/photos/46064258@N08/4587764023/

    I'm sure you'll find the saucers, I see orphaned saucers all the time!
