Pyrex Week, Day 2: Oval Dishes

Today I have two oval dishes to share.  I seem to have many oval pieces, but most of them are Fire King and Glasbake, so I won't be sharing those this week.  I have two oval pieces of Pyrex.

First up:

A number 33 (? it's the only number on the bottom besides the capacity) 1 1/2 quart oval non-divided dish.  Snowflake pattern, white on Charcoal.  Very attractive!  Looks like production of this pattern began in 1957, but I am unsure when production ended.  I love this piece, and the color combination is the least common of the snowflake color combinations.  I'm imagining it filled with macaroni and cheese this winter!  Yum!  Comfort food in a vintage dish.


This divided oval dish is piece number 16 (?) and is also a 1 1/2 quart capacity piece.  The pattern on this piece is Early American, with gold figures on a brown background.  The clear lid is in excellent condition as is the dish itself.  Actually, this piece is so perfect, I question if it was ever even used!  According to Pyrex Love, this pattern was manufactured beginning in 1961, but I do not know when the pattern was discontinued.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for more!


  1. I'm so proud of myself, Michael! I actually used one of my primary color Pyrex bowls (the big yellow one)!!!! I'm still not going to let anyone (including me) use the jade-ite Fire King bowls but at least I'm using the Pyrex. Yay for me!!!! PS--I love the charcoal snowflake--after you got yours I found one, too, also without a lid. I think mac 'n cheese would look great in it, especially around Halloween.

  2. WOW Christine! I'm impressed! I went to a party over the weekend and one of the people there brought a pasta salad in a big yellow Pyrex bowl. I told her that she would need to keep a close eye on it around me!
