A couple of bloggers, http://vonlipisfavorites.blogspot.com, and http://pyrexcollective.blogspot.com/2010/08/refrigerator-dishes, whom I follow, are as obsessed as I am about Pyrex refrigerator dishes.
I was always impressed with the array of colours they have.
I can even remember these either at my grandmothers or in my Mom's kitchen when I was young, not sure. But when I first caught sight of these I needed to have some.
These Delphite dishes were made in Canada by Pyrex.
All the others I have were made in the USA.
I should mention that these dishes are 'oven-proof' as well and can be used for baking. I have one casserole dish by Pyrex and decorated by Gay Fad. I showed this piece a couple of Retro Saturdays back.
I very rarely use these. They are on display in the kitchen cupboards and the colours can be seen through the glass doors. Really brightens up the place.
These dishes are 'flying off the shelves' of thrift stores and 'collectables' shops. You can still get them for a pretty cheap price though, if you look hard enough.
And remember these are all very durable and usable. Besides, every kitchen could use a 'punch' of colour, wouldn't you agree?
Oh yes, 'pyrex collective' is having a great 'giveaway'....check her out.
