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?

I've never heard that before, but I see it now - honestly wouldn't stop me from buying it if I found one at a good priceDelete
I love the bowl, just every time some finds one and posts it i wanna scream at the screen: FETUS. Lol.Delete
I love the Salad Bowl! I use mine as a key and change catcher at my entryway table. :)ReplyDelete
Oh cool!! I love it so much! =)Delete
I love the color of the bowl but not so much the pattern. I'm glad you found it at such a great price and that you love it. That is all that matters!ReplyDelete
I didn't care for the pattern at first, but all of a sudden I really was liking it!Delete
I love the unique color of this one. I will always regret being in Goodwill and seeing this (I was a Pyrex newbe). I hesitated, and when I went back a moment later, it was gone! Maybe I'll find it again. Enjoy yours!ReplyDelete
Meto, the color really intrigues me! Oh don't you hate that when you leave something behind?! I did that when I saw a starburst with its cradle in an antique store and the guy was going to give it to me for $60! I left it behind because I was already spending a lot of money, but I hope it is still there when I go in a month!Delete
