The shoppers in the ad below from 1941 seem pretty excited about all of that Pyrex. I understand completely - I really like it, too! It is used in my kitchen every single day.
And I don't know about you, but my Thanksgiving pies were in Pyrex pie plates! (This ad is from 1948)
This Frigidaire Cycla-Matic refrigerator from 1952 has some Pyrex dishes inside ( and also some pretty Harker Cameoware):And this freezer from a story in 1959 sure is full. The article was about a lady and how she shops and freezes food for economy - good idea still today, of course! And she has a nice Pyrex Snowflake casserole in there. I like it:
As much as I love Pyrex, I don't actually collect the older , colorful dishes like all of the pretty ones
in the ad below. I do appreciate their beauty and usefulness, though.
I just don't have the space for another collection.
I love seeing the pictures of collections on other blogs, there are so many different colors and patterns! These sets are nice - so bright and cheery in the Daisy and Verde patterns:
But these dishes, below, are the types I have. In fact, right now our refrigerator is full of leftovers stored in a variety of Pyrex dishes - my favorites with the lids - the easiest way to store food in nice, stackable, see-through, dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe Pyrex. I love 'em!
