Has anyone ever seen this?

Neither one of us had ever thought that we would be to a point where we would blog about our thrifting finds, although we both enjoy others' posts. Today that all changed when we definitely found something that we had never seen before and that we can't find anywhere after hours of research on the Internet. At a thrifter's paradise in Astoria, Oregon we found this............

This fluorescent lighted advertisement states "Flameware Pyrex Ovenware." We would welcome any kind of information that anyone has about this light. We haven't been able to find any information about it and would love to hear if anyone has even seen something like this before. We are really excited to have it and because we are huge Pyrex collectors, this is the find of a life time. We will give it a perfect home!


  1. Wow, what a unique find!

    This is totally just a guess--but I've browsed through my Pyrex Unauthorized Collector's Guide and looked through the flameware section. Flameware was produced from 1936 into the 1970s. However, I would venture to guess that this sign is earlier/older than newer, possibly 1930s or 40s. I guess this because the serifs on the typography for the word "PYREX". The Pyrex logo took on a more block letter look in the late 40s/50s (I think!)

    Seeing how popular vintage signage can be, too, I'd say this is a fantastic find!

  2. How COOL! Vintage signs are super collectable and can bring in a pretty penny (if I've learned anything from American Pickers :P )

  3. Wow, what a super cool find!! I love it!

  4. Neat find! Post a pic of how you are going to use it!
