I got the mother-lode of pyrex refrigerator dishes. The only downside is that they were all FILTHY! All of them had dried baked food crusts and a film of brown scum -- the kind that some old people have in their houses when they just don't clean well...for years. I wasn't sure if the it was dirt on them or if the finish was gone, but decided to take my chances.
I got so much Pyrex (and some other treasures, too):
|I've never seen this pattern before. It's a fired on white finish with gold painted pinecones. The pinecones are on the lid, too.|
I got a couple of large pieces and had to go back to pick them up. (including this white utility cart that was in the bathroom, covered with sheets and towels). I was so excited when they said they'd sell it to me and even more excited when they got all the stuff off of it and I saw that it had electric!
When I was back to pick the big things up, I made one last pass through the kitchen and found these:
|I think this is an original Fire King jadite mixing bowl -- it was tucked away in the back of a cabinet! The baster is a glass one, though I don't know if it's Pyrex or not.|
|This is the bottom of the Fire King bowl.|
|FINALLY everything was clean!|
