~ Pyrex .... stalking things on eBay...

I just love this vintage advertisement for Pyrex. It is too cute for words. 

So as I do when I have time to kill... I roam around in eBay looking for the oddities. Today I spied a couple of neat things in the Pyrex division. Neat vintage items. 

First up. A set of clear mixing bowls. A set I have not ever seen in person. And they are mint in package too.

I have a set of these older mixing bowls, the standard round set. That I use all the time. 

But this set of vintage bowls... actually have a flat hand tab and a pointed pour spout.

And they were bought on sale! For a buck twenty seven!  Then got left in the cabinet never to have been used.

Now I have seen quite a few sets of the Pyrex primary colored mixing bowls... with their label intact. But this set actually has its original Pyrex box too!

Of course the price sticker is here to cruelly taunt me... that for 3.50 this set of bowls could be yours! (in 1955!)

I have seen oodles of the coffee carafe's from Pyrex. All kind of shapes and handles. Lots of great mid century designs on them. But this is the first time I have seen the coffee carafe' with its matching creamer and sugar bowl.

Or should I call it... the Pyrex Kaffee Klatch.  :)

Oh I like those first bowls. It would be nice to have both of those sets. I don't need anymore primary bowls, though. I have, I think, 7 sets. One looks unused. I will have to watch those and see what they go for.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

PS, my mom always used her big yellow bowl to mix her pumpkin pie filling in, so I do the same thing with mine!

Happy Thanksgiving... back at cha! :)

I am really fascinated by those clear Pyrex bowls, with that tab handle. I have seen a lot of clear vintage Pyrex bake ware... but never seen any of those before.
