I normally talk mostly about vintage jewelry and accessories on this blog, but I do have other collecting passions outside of the sparkly stuff. I also am a big fan of vintage Pyrex. Growing up my mom had a small collection of vintage Cinderella bowls. When ever we would go antiquing when I was a kid, my sister and I were instructed to keep our eyes out for sets of Cinderella bowls. To me the great thing was that we actually used them in my mother's kitchen. They didn't just sit on the shelf gathering dust.
In my travels through estate sales and auctions I've been able to pickup a few good Pyrex treasures. Until today the favorite piece I owned had been my Golden Scrolll Cinderella bowl from 1959. It was a promotional item and a little harder to find.
Well, I have had my eye on a certain casserole dish for a really long time, but it seemed to always be out of my budget. I have been really wanting the Moon Deco dish forever...but could not afford the high price. It seems to be one of the more collectible patterns and go far large amounts like this listing here.
I had even seem this catalog page on Flickr that shows the piece...and it is from the year I was born, which then made me want it even more. So I always kept my eye out.
Well, today I found the piece at a local estate sale in Ballard. It was in pretty good condition with no cracks or chips. I almost squealed in the house when I saw it and pratically ran over to it. It made my day.
Now I think I'm going to concentrate on finding the pieces from the Barbed Wire pattern. If I find enough pieces of that one...I might upgrade to it and let my Forest Fancies pieces go. We shall see.
You'll have to forgive the pictures I pulled off the web. I didn't have time to take the pics myself.
