1950’s Pyrex Bowls in Every Kitchen

These bowls were usually found in most every kitchen in the 1950’s. The primary colors of Pyrex bowls held their rich colors until dishwashers and rough handling started to wear away the rich shiney, color surfaces. This was a lucky find last year for an astounding $10.00 for the set!

    Incredible price to get this set! AThese were absolutely the bowls that were in my kitchen growing up. If I’m not mistaken there’s also a tiny yellow bowl that completes the set. Though I’m not 100% sure about that… But for some reason yellow is sticking in my brain. I’m swooning just looking at these because they were such a part of my childhood.

      Oh I love this nesting bowl set. Brings back such memories of my childhood too. You are nearly right about the yellow bowl, Allee, only it was the largest bowl. I have a set of vintage Pyrex square stacking refrigerator bowls that I should share.

        I almost said largest and then I changed it at the last minute. I should always go with the first thought that’s in my head as it’s usually the best one. And, yes, I’ve never even heard of square Pyrex colored bowls so please post those here.

    There may have been two version of the colors. I also had the largest bowl which is yellow, (the size of this green bowl) and the very smallest which is blue. All marked Pyrex.
    I use the rectangle refrigerator dishes with glass rib top daily. Two yellow and one aqua. Great for the micro too. All yard sale finds I cherish. I think the real prize is a mint PINK Pyrex piece. Rare, I’ve seen them faded and scratched.

      I love the refrigerator dishes, too! Sad to say I’ve broken a number of them, because I do use them all the time. But around here they’re still fairly cheap to pick up.. I don’t have any pink ones though!
