February 6, 2013My Collection Obsession – Vintage Pyrex
Sable’s post from last week showcasing some of the vintage Pyrex on Etsy got me thinking that I should show some of my collection to you! I’ve also got a handy cleaning tip for you, as well. Although I love pretty much all Pyrex, my collection is primarily green patterns, specifically Spring Blossom, Verde and Square Flowers. If you’ve got Pyrex that you’d like to identify, Pyrex Love is a great place to look.
This is a margarine dish, which was actually a promo item back in the 70s. They were meant to hold tubs of Parkay margarine. Unfortunately, today’s margarine tubs don’t fit, so I just transfer my margarine in.
Although these aren’t Pyrex, I had to include them as well. These were made by a company called Gemco, who made these to coordinate with Corelle Dishes in Spring Blossom, which were made to coordinate with the Spring Blossom Pyrex. So coordinated! I love the metal look lids on these, as I think they give them a bit of a diner feel. I would love to collect all of the Gemco pieces.
And now for my tip!
These Scrunge pads are made by Vileda – they are made for cleaning lass ceramic cooktops without scratching. I was cleaning my stovetop one day, and thought they might be worth a try on Pyrex, since they are made to not scratch.
This is only part of my Pyrex collection! I am sure many of you collect Pyrex as well – what patterns do you collect?
