Pyrex is in the air!

I have more finds to show all of you. These are an early Christmas present from my mom.
She asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and of course I said Pyrex! Who wouldn't?!
This Sunday we went to NJ for a change since we always go to CT. We went to an antique flea market but it was raining outside and in the winter time this flea market is dull, nothing like the summer where it is hard to find a parking spot!
I saw a 1 1/2 Qt. Snowflake casserole and asked the older man who was selling it how much is it and he said $20 he said "I bought it that way and im selling it that way". and I put it down and walked away, don't care for his attitude nor his price.

We left the flea market empty handed and went to an antique center in NJ. We have been there before and although at the time I did not have an obsession with Pyrex, I would not know what I would find since I am addicted to Pyrex.

My mom bought me this Horizon Blue 2 1/2 Qt casserole.
It is in MINT condition!
Looks like it has never been touched just admired =)

It was priced at $22 and with the discount we got it for $19!

Then we went to an antique store right down the street from the one we just went to and I hit the mother load there!

This is my first piece in this pattern, the Pink Gooseberry.
It is the 1.5 Qt mixing bowl
Got it for $8.

Found this awesome Promotional item. It is called "Vintage" but everyone knows it as (Grapes).
I found it in perfect condition with the lid and the plastic under plate for $22 and got it for $15!

I did find this 1.5 Qt white on turquoise Snowflake casserole at this antique store!
It is the same one I saw at the flea market for $20.
My mom got it for $15.

My mom also bought me this retro pink oval casserole dish with a neat lid from Glasbake.
She got it for $10 bucks.

This last piece I ALMOST told the women to put it back because as she was wrapping it I noticed that it was a divided dish! I did not know that when I picked it up with excitement!
It has a clear glass lid (not divided) with a gold design on it, and the bottom dish is divided so it didn't make sense to me. but for some reason I held my breath and bought it anyway!
Thank goodness I did!
This is a promotional item.

This is from 1961. This pattern is called "Royal".
My question is, why would they put a glass lid on a divided dish, usually they make the lid divided also.?

That is all for now, Happy Pyrexing!


  1. Drool! You found some good loot! Happy for you! :)

  2. wow! that is an awesome haul! i only wish i could find one item that is in good condition. i am envious.

    1. Thank you =) I was shocked to even see at antique center's that they were in excellent condition for low prices too! I lucked out I guess! I am sure you will come across awesome items soon

  3. Well it looks to be a very Merry Pyrex Christmas for you! Love it all (even the Glasbake which I normally don't).

    Happy Holidays,


    1. I loooove the Pink glasbake one myself! I love the lid with the decals, have never seen anything like it before so that's why I brought it home with me.
      And of course all of the Pyrex finds are always awesome!

  4. My word, you two really hit the jackpot on these finds. Usually when I see Pyrex it is in an antique mall and rather pricey. I do not recall seeing some of these patterns tho.

    1. Yes we did!!
      Well, this one antique store that I scored all these awesome pieces is closing in May, so one of the sellers was having 50% off of her items.

  5. Bravo on your finds!
    The shades of blue on the Horizon look very pretty and the Glasbake is a very different shape. Lucky you!

    1. The blue horizon is awesome, I know!
      The Glasbake is really unique, I love it!

  6. I have that Vintage casserole- didn't know it was supposed to come with a cradle tho. Now I will have to look for that! :)

    1. Yes, find the underplate, it is green! It is a must have because it makes the piece stand out!
