Two days ago I received a package in the mail and yes it was something I bought from eBay.
I have been buying a few pieces of Pyrex that I can win at an auction at a decent price to get my "Pyrex Fix". Some of you can feel my pain of not finding a whole lot in the thrift stores, hopefully this will all change tomorrow when I go on the hunt. Getting back to my purchase, I finally opened the package yesterday and it was in really really good shape. It is a 1960 Promotional Cinderella mixing bowl called "Salad Bowl". It came originally with clear tongs but of course those did not come with my purchase and have not seen them before with any "Salad Bowl" on the internet. I am wondering if the tongs were marked Pyrex? Or were they without a logo? Would love to find out!
It is a beautiful shade of teal, and is a standard 4 QT. I will be using this for salad! I LOVE it. I paid $29 with shipping, I didn't think it was that bad, and was the cheapest one on eBay. I won the auction because no one else was bidding on it...I wonder why? Do Pyrex collectors not like this pattern? My friend bought one for $10 in an antique store and was in MINT condition. At first I have to admit I was not loving it, it was OKAY but nothing great...then I came to think about it and looked at pictures of it on the internet and I grew fond of it and loved it and wanted it! So now I have the "Salad bowl" to add to my Pyrex collection, isn't she pretty?
Does anyone have this promotional bowl in their collection, and if so what do they serve in it?
