My parents bought me these two beautiful pieces back from Fort Wayne, Indiana (Hi Karin and Mark!) as Christmas presents. A lovely verde casserole with patterned lid! and my very sought after pink gooseberry fridigie! The gravy boat (sans underplate) was from my "inlaws". I was spoiled. My boyfriend even bought me the pyrex collectors book, although I'm still unsure as to whether he supports this addiction.
I replied to a message on kijiji and ended up scoring all this.
It belonged to the womans mother and the butterprint set had been a wedding present to her.
I love the history you get when you buy pyrex from people rather than from a store.
I got these three over two days from two different VVs.
A verde 043, a blue horizon and a friendship orange with daisy lid.
But, this was the best find of the holiday. Another craigslist find and I paid, get ready for it....
FIVE DOLLARS! She's gorgeous, there's some scratches but they're all on the bottom. The woman I got it from said she got it as a wedding present in 1961. I think she's survived very well.
That's all for me for now,
Hope you all had a wonderful, pyrex filled holiday.
