Pyrex drought

Hello everyone!

I have been trying for the last 2 weeks to bring home my usual haul of Pyrex!
For some reason there is a Pyrex drought....and I am not liking it!

Now I come home with maybe 2 finds of Pyrex when before I used to bring home 10 pieces or more!
Well, this Friday I went to my normal thrift routine and only found 1 piece of Pyrex and then found two lids which are pretty neat..

I found this Stripe Pyrex dish in Savers on Friday.
I was not loving it at first and I almost did not buy it but it intrigued me because I have never seen one like this before....does anyone know if this is a rare piece or if it was promotional? I know nothing so any info would be great!
I bought it for $3.99

I also found this lid at the same is in EXCELLENT condition
was looking for the bottom piece but nowhere to be found =(
I am not sure on this one either....where does this lid go to?

My first friendship Pyrex that I ever found! Again, no bottom just the lid.
Found this in GW.
I figured I would buy it because I might just find the bottom one day....

I found this yesterday at an estate sale a block away from me.
It is in near mint condition, the bottom part is in excellent condition just the lid has a chip in it on the inside, not noticeable.
I got it for $10. Maybe a little too much for it but I am desperate for some Pyrex!


  1. Does the stripe dish have a Pyrex logo on the bottom? I've never seen that one before, and the shape looks a bit unusual.

    1. Yes it is stamped Pyrex on the bottom...this it was it says:

      222 8 inch
      Trade Mark
      R (The R is circled)
      Made in the USA

  2. the square dish is known as "gold band". there is also a 024/utility bowl with a lid and a pie plate from the same series. i've also seen white bowls with a gold lip but i'm not sure that they are the same set as the gold band is different.


  3. :) the gold lid is for golden classic! I have it too, so pretty!

    1. Okay great! I love the lid, it is very pretty.

  4. Don't you love all this info? Such knowledgeable ladies. Jealous of your friendship lid!

    1. Yes I do! This blog is amazing for info!

  5. Our thrift stores and Goodwill rarely if ever have Pyrex. I have found one booth in a local antique store that carries a lot of it and some of her is reasonably priced. But most of mine has to come from regular yard sales.

    1. Oh wow, that sucks =( I HATE it when I do not see any Pyrex. That is good though that you have an antique store that has Pyrex and she is reasonable! That you don't see very often.
