I went to an estate sale in a nearby town. Now that garage sale season has begun, the hubby is super great about letting me sneak off to a few garage sales on the weekend, while he watches baby. This town is even smaller then my town. Maybe it is more like a village! I always find great Pyrex is this tiny little town for some reason. Anyways, a well known antique dealer had passed on and his family was selling the items from his store as an estate sale/garage sale. All the original antique store prices were left on the items but you could barter. I ended up knowing one of the relatives there helping. I walked past this blue Delphite casserole and really, didn't even think that it was Pyrex. I thought it was Fire King or something similar. I didn't bother picking it up or anything to even look and see if it was Pyrex.
I moseyed on down the tables and saw another piece of Pyrex with a wrong lid. It didn't have a price tag. I went and asked the gal that I knew, what the price might be. She said I could have it for a dollar! I told her the lid was wrong but that I could probably use it for something else (which I had a large Butterfly casserole that needed a lid).
Turns out it the 2.5 deep version of the early 1960's Golden Honeysuckle casserole. It is very "Mad Men" looking to me! Now, I will just need to find a lid for it:) Not bad for a buck though!
So, I went back over to the first table and decided to look at the bottom of the blue Delphite casserole. That is when I discovered this..
I thought to myself, well, I am not really a Pyrex expert although I have been collecting since I was in college (over 10 years ago). I had a feeling that this might be a special piece since it says "Made in Canada" and is Delphite blue. I don't know much of anything about Pyrex Delphite, so can anyone share some information with me? I'm not sure that the lid is original or not? There was a $28 price tag on it and they gave me a price of $8 which I almost declined because I thought it was waaay to expensive for an estate sale or even a thrift store! My gut told me to buy it because it was Delphite.
I also found this #401 for $2. The picture doesn't look that great for some reason, it is pretty in person! The funny part is that I have needed this little blue bowl for like a year, to complete my primary mixing set and now, in a matter of a month, this is the second one I have found! I just love the size of these little ones and my husband and I use them frequently, so I bought this one too:)
Hope the weekend garage saling was great for everyone! I know my pics are terrible. I'm to lazy to get my real camera out and just use my iPhone anymore:)
