Reading all the wonderful posts, I realised that I was ASSuming that everyone knew me (not too bright). So Here goes!
 I'm Valerie. I live in western Québec. I'm crazy about thrifting and having collecting Pyrex for 3 years now. My SO insists I have every Pyrex ever produced, but of course I disagree!

You can find me blogging here @ Vonlipis Favorites .

I was thinking about Pyrex (of course) ,Red Pyrex. There was not a lot produced. Originally you had the 402 Primary bowl and the smallest red fridgie from the original Primary refrigerator set.
For Xmas some Promo pieces were issued like the big red bowl with the gold holly and a big 2 1/2 casserole (that I know of). I think that red was not that popular in the 50's and 60's.

Then in the 70's, they started to produce the Frienship pattern and that pattern has some red pieces. But mostly it's red accents on the bowls and lids.

So shown here are the red 402 with my new olive wood spoon (LOVE) and fennel salad, the 472 Frienship casserole and the 501 small fridgie. As you can see I'm missing the lid for the Friendship casserole....If you have one you drop me a line, ok?

Have a great Pyrexy weekend!  


  1. swoon! I love me some red Pyrex!

  2. I love your red Pyrex! I've just gone one squarish-looking serving bowl so far, but it's one of my faves.

  3. I loved learning more about your collection. I do love the red!! I am such a beginner in my collection of Pyrex but I am happy with all the pieces I have and most of them from the thrift! I hate paying big money for them.

  4. hi amy! you should do a post about what those 400 #s mean :) the red is so pretty. it's strange that it's uncommon, i guess it just wasn't the in colour then...
