I'm Barbara, and I have a very small collection of old Pyrex that I inherited from my mother nearly 30 years ago. Missing is a set of mixing bowls that I gave my youngest son and I'm wondering if I can get it back! Seriously! I live in Florida and will be moving to Texas in the next few months. I retired the pieces that are shown here when I learned that they are now considered collectibles, but I used them hard for many years.
I wonder if there is any interest in a related field - Corning Ware. Most of my Pyrex is mundane bakeware and mixing cups and bowls, but most of it has also been in continuous use for nearly 50 years. I have a lot of Corning ware that I use every single day and couldn't cook without! My husband, to be forever known here as DH, worked for Corning in the 1970's. We lived in Corning, N. Y. for several years. He could tell you a lot about how our favorite glassware was made, the designs printed on, and many other things about the glassworks. It is also home to Steuben glass which is a whole other level of collecting! As for me, I love this old Pyrex best, and the memories attached to mine are very precious.
I hope I can get this posted - it is my second try! I have no idea what I'm doing, so please bear with me!
