Re: PYREX Ice Bucket

Looks like 2 Qt at top of the PYREX logo and just a guess at the bottom where it looks like possibly B-9. Looks like the liner was maybe a thin type cork possibly spray painted silver with a adhesive to keep it in place. Think time with cold ice inside caused the cork liner to create a mold/fungus t...

PYREX Ice Bucket

Came across an ice bucket last weekend at a yard sale that had a Pyrex stamp on the glass insert. It has the Back Stamp (1950) As shown on the Pyrex Collector "Dating Pyrex Kitchenware" The insert is clear and appears to have some sort of adhesive to keep it inside the bucket. It is 6 1/2" Diameter ...

Thrift store find

Still finding some good pieces for the price. Only $25 for this complete set. Whats strange is they appear to have never been used.

Yard sale find

Been a couple weeks since I've picked these pieces up but just thought they were worth sharing. Haven't even looked up the patterns as of this post. All were like new finish with no fading or scratches.

Re: Places to find Pyrex?

I've had pretty good luck at estate sales. It's a hit and miss so don't be discouraged if you don't find something the first time. Yard sales are another place to look. If you don't see anything just ask the owner if they have anything. Sometimes they think it's not worth putting out and no one is i...

Pyrex Tea Pot

I just acquired a Pyrex Tea Pot yesterday and posted it on Instagram in hopes that someone would help I.D. it. I'm thinking it is a very old piece according to the logo which looks like dollar signs. I'm posting a few pics so if anyone can help tie down a date I would very much appreciate it. Thanks...

Pyrex Crystal Pitcher

My Pyrex collecting is going a lot slower than I have hoped for. Friday I stopped in a local resale shop and found this Crystal Pitcher of which I paid $2 for. I did a search on eBay and didn't see any listed which makes me think it is a modern piece with absolutely no value for a collector. It will...

Re: Genuine Opal 404

I saw that, I got super jealous when I saw you got it for three bucks. I know it's not a competition but I really like winning. I'm determined to find the rest cheap though, I will resist the temptation to spend big to complete the set. I'm going to Round Top Antique show in TX at the end of this m...

Re: Cradle I.D.

I may have just answered my own query regarding that cradle. I was comparing how the cradle attaches to the wood handle on my piece as to how it attaches to the handles on our home page pics. My cradle has the wire going into the wood about 3/4" from the end of the handle where as the ones I see on ...

Re: 100th Anniversary Exhibit Cases

I noticed the same thing Bonnie and I figured I had a browser that wasn't compatible with the photos shown. I also only got a black square when I hovered over a piece but no description.
