thrift-share monday: a bit of candy

some of the pyrex colours reminds me of candy. is it just me? i think it’s the way the colours and patterns seem to swirl out from the pure white background.

my most recent finds, in excellent condition:

403 (2.5 qt) horizon blue bowl…

475B (2.5 qt) friendship casserole (no lid)…

i’m not sure what the “B” after 475 means. anyone know?

    Would you believe? I just picked up a stack of Pyrex LIDS at a yard sale. Three of them and they fit three of my bowls that had been thus far lidless. They aren’t factory matches, that would be something of a miracle, but they fit and now I can stop using my plates as toppers.

    I so agree that Pyrex colors are reminiscent of candy. My favorite one at home is the flamingo pink. So like cotton candy, it reminds me of carnivals and state fairs. Yum!

    I’m one of those weird people who like to research stuff–about anything, for anyone. I took your question about your cheery Friendship casserole as a personal challenge!

    Thanks to Corelle Corner, here’s what I found out:

    475 refers to the 2 1/2-quart size of the Cinderella Casserole Set. (Scroll about halfway down the page.)

    “B” refers to “bowl. (“C” refers to “cover”.) (Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.)

    Scroll way down to “1970s” for info about Friendship. Be sure to click on the link to the 1971 catalogue page about the pattern.; )
