Starbursts & Polka Dots!

I picked up two nice Pyrex pieces recently.  I was happy to find this green polka dots mixing bowl to help finish a set -- now all I need is the yellow one!
I also go this starburst casserole & I just love it!
When I went online, though, to try to find out about the pattern & history, I saw one just like it that ended up selling on Ebay for $120!  Can any of you tell me about it -- when it was made, if it was a promotional, what the pattern name is, etc?  Do any of you know why it would sell for so much?  I'm assuming it was bidder's frenzy and that two people just REALLY wanted it a lot!  Regardless of how much it's worth, it's not leaving my collection any time soon!

Thanks for anything you can tell me about it!

A Little Green

Hello, Pyrex friends!  It's been a long time since I've posted here, but I found a cute little bowl today at a flea market to share with you, the perfect St. Patty's Day lucky surprise!

A #441 green and white Cinderella bowl in the "Ivy" pattern.  I think it was the dip bowl to a promotional set, but feel free to correct me on any of that, if it's wrong.

I was happy to make a deal on this, in any case.  Nothing wrong with that!  (The bunny was a fun find too.)

Charcoal Snowflake


This is my new piece of Charcoal Snowflake, it's a 548B - 1 1/4 quart - is this a space saver?  It's really small, I've never seen one this size before.

This is my Charcoal collection, it's my very favourite pattern - I always thought the dish in the stand was a space saver - it's a JAJ piece.  I thought I read once that there were two different sizes?

I had some other neat finds this week, if you care to read about them, click here
