Weekend & last week finds

Happy Monday! I really didn't find any beautiful, must have Pyrex this past weekend or last week like some of you did, but I did find a few a things. Without further ado, here they are:

This makes my second green primary bowl, but the price was cheap and I couldn't resist!

Have any of you ever seen a solid color Corning Ware dish like this? I hadn't until I spotted this at, of course I bought it. From what I've researched, I don't think that's the original lid. I think the original lid was solid green like the bowl.

Well, that was my little haul for the past week, and weekend. Nothing real fancy or dazzling, but still Pyrex.


  1. re: corning ware
    I saw dishes that were approx. 1/2 of the depth of your dish. Two of them were at St. John's Thrift and 1 was at Value Viilage (just down the street from St. J's). These 2 stores are located in Toronto. They were the same green colour as your dish, but had opaque lids; same white as the inside of the dishes with a green knob at the top of the lid. Laura

  2. Laura, I saw a couple of pictures online, and that's the type lids I saw on them too. White with green knob. How I wish mine had the original lid!!

  3. That lid is from a sculptured pyrex set that included a bowl, lid, and tray.

  4. I have one of the corning ware dishes. Yep, they have a white cover with a green knob. I'll try to get a picture of it and post it soon if you would like.

  5. That looks like a piece of Centura, possibly the Lynnwood pattern. Centura was dinnerware made by Corning before they made Corelle. There were matching Corning Ware casseroles. There are pictures at

  6. Mal: hmm, I'll have to look up sculptured pyrex. I've never heard of it.

    DoubleSparrow - oh yes, please post a picture of yours. I'd love to see it!

    Betty: thanks for the link!
