Vintage Joy!

Don’t you just jump for joy when you find colorful vintage Pyrex? I do!!! The only thing that makes me more joyful is to find holiday Pyrex during the holidays!

I just found this 2-quart red holiday casserole in a white pinecone pattern. After a bit of research, I found out that it is a 1960 Holiday promotional casserole.


It originally came with a cradle and knobbed lid which unfortunately were not with the casserole. However, I already had a 2-quart flat lid that I think will work just fine.



Finding such a fabulous piece makes me want to try a recipe from one of these old typewritten/mimeographed cookbooklets that I bought at a church rummage sale today.



If all of this seasonal vintage-ness brings a nostalgic tear to your eye, maybe you could use a vintage Christmas handkerchief like this one……



I hope you find some vintage joy, too!!!

  1. I am a little weepy at your awesome find. ;-)

    I hope to learn more about pyrex because I see it all the time but never know if I should buy it or not although I think this pinecone casserole would be a no-brainer since I've never seen this before. Great score!

  4. Awesome find. I don't have a lot of Pyrex and when I run across it at the thrift stores I'm not really sure if it's a unique pattern or not. But that one is a keeper.

  5. Well, I'll be! You did find something special. I have never seen that one before. Guess what I found just yesterday! A white pyrex bowl with designs on it. I did buy it. They also had a bigger one that was pink with white designs. I let that one go. Was that a mistake?

    Hope all is well with you and yours! :)

  6. I have seen many Pyrex pieces lately on the blogs. I have never seen this one before. It is getting very popular again. This one is a beauty.

  7. You sure know your Pyrex and you probably have a lid to fit just about anything. I don't think I've ever seen this pretty pattern before. I'm sure anything from that fun vintage cookbook would taste yummy in this casserole dish.

  16. Christmas Pyrex...wow! Marketing geniuses even back then. I'm thinking I might have to find some of those old cardboard village houses that were under my grandma's tree... I wish my mom would have kept them...I remember gazing at them as a child. Thanks for the memories.

  17. I thought I had that dish - but mine's a bowl in a redder shade, but still orangey and gold pine cones and boughs. So there are other Christmas pyrex floating around out there. Love church lady cookbooks - those have the best recipes.

  19. Your new pyrex is so pretty I haven't seen that one and didn't know there was pinecone one made.

    I have a very small one for someone's Christmas gift. It is about the size of a coffee mug in the same color as your pinecone

    merry Christmas
