Today I went to my friend Becky's house for a visit. She is getting ready to sell her house and has been cleaning, dumping, and organizing like crazy. She had mentioned to me on the phone that she found a few Pyrex pieces that I might enjoy seeing.
Becky also has a love for vintage, mostly glassware.
When I arrived, pleasantries were quickly exchanged and she eagerly led me up the stairs into her kitchen. On the way up she was commenting about the Pyrex she had found and she wasn't sure what I'd think about it, but wanted to show me anyway, etc., etc.
We walked into the kitchen and I about fell backward.
Do you know where she found this lovely example of a Pyrex casserole? At the Goodwill for 7.99! Can you believe it. I mean, it even has the lid! How often do you come across something like this? Like, pretty much, never.
We were actually on our way to the Goodwill and I had brought my camera along to photograph stuff for the blog. So, I immediately took out my camera and started shooting pictures of this rare Pyrex. It is red, but in the light it has that wonderfully comforting pink Pyrex glow.
When I was done photographing, I cradled it like a baby and then gave it back...
Any idea what this Pyrex pattern is called?
UPDATE: THIS PATTERN IS CALLED GOLDEN POINSETTIA AND WAS A PROMO PIECE IN THE EARLY 60'S.
