Re: Willow Pattern

According to Dots & Diamonds (see www.thatretropiece.com) the pattern (on clear dinnerware) was introduced in 1934, and other verbiage seems to indicate was produced until 1939. It was at first just etched into the glass with no color applied, then etched and enameled, and finally just applied via "...

Re: Hello!

On a PC, the option is in the left column. On a mobile device or tablet, it is under "filter".

Re: Hello!

The standard answer is to check eBay "sold" listings (not just "completed") to determine a realistic average. If in unused condition (paint unscratched and shiny), those particular bowls in that pattern usually go for well north of $100 per set. Original box adds value.

Re: Which Lid 024?

The 1968 Pineapple promo came with a cradle and a 624 knob top lid. A couple years later, it was sold as a special with just a 684 utility lid. The avocado green 024 with utility lid was also sold as a special at the same time. A some point, a bright green and a poppy red 024 were sold as singles, a...

Re: Todays find!

Stray hugger cradles turn up on eBay occasionally. Sometimes with the wrong dish, which if something you want, can end up being a win/win.

Re: Places to find Pyrex?

The BP butter dish is a lucky find.

There are some places that have organized swap meets, but unless you live reasonably nearby, might not be cost-effective to attend.

Perhaps you can get some ideas about where to look (or where not to) from:

Re: Flamingo Pink Nesting Bowls

Pink was produced 1957-1963. That's one of the longer periods for a Pyrex pattern/color, but the 4 bowl set in pink was offered only the first couple of those years, so that's where the "rare" part comes from. My impression of Etsy in general is that prices always tend to be higher than what I would...

Re: Flamingo Pink Nesting Bowls

Pyrex bowls and dishes produced in the pink color are often mistakenly called flamingo pink. Flamingo Pyrex is a much bolder fuchsia, however, and no nesting bowls were produced in Flamingo. In perfect condition, that asking price for a pink 400 set would not be out of line in today's market. One wo...

Re: Mis-marked Pyrex bowl

It's obvious from photos including an entire set with a reversed 441 and a dealer's hang tag that the photo image is not flipped. By what mechanism the reversal occurred is not as important as the fact that it could and did occur. Since the process is an automated one, with hundreds of bowls passing...
