The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Pyrex, are these great colorful mixing bowls. The bright colors are so typical of the 1950s. Where I live, these are the set of Pyrex to have, if you collect Pyrex. When I do by chance find a set for sale they are usually around $100. I was fortunate enough to inherit this set. My grandma and her sister, my great-aunt, both had sets of these. They were gifts early in their married lives from their mother, my great-grandmother. My grandma has managed to break the small blue bowl in her set, but my great-aunt, who my set belonged to, managed to keep hers in near pristine condition. I inherited this set a couple of years ago, when my great-aunt moved out of her home and into assisted living. I do use these bowls occasionally, and I love the family connection. A mid-century kitchen needs mid-century cookware!
Enjoy your Thursday, we're one day closer to Friday!
