Lately, I have found three “new” pieces of vintage Pyrex.
The first was a Black Snowflake (white snowflakes on black matte) oblong casserole dish with lid (548-B, 1¼ qt 27) introduced in 1957. I was lucky to find this piece with its glass lid, though, it has a slight chip in the lid on the underside. Thankfully, it’s not noticeable.
The second piece was a 1950s Amish Butterprint – blue on white – (0503, 1½ qt ovenware) casserole. It’s in pretty good condition, considering its age, and the blue pattern has just started to fade ever so slightly. This doesn’t particularly bother me, as these old Pyrex vessels tend to bake/cook food with a greater degree of integrity than other brands, even those newer.
My other recent find was another Amish Butterprint pattern, but this one is a round Cinderella dish with lid ( 473, 1qt) and is in mint condition. The base colour on this little beauty is that 1950s turquoise blue, with a white Butterprint pattern.
It’s always fun to find new pieces unexpectedly and, I suppose, that is the fun behind collecting.
