"I think we tend to be drawn to "realistic" pot holders; these are the ones that are shaped like a recognizable item. I was digging through a box of yellow kitchen collectibles and found this gay and gifty tea cup. Your turn. How about…"
"Yes, Cream of Tartar, but there's a chance that someone placed a lid on this. It is still amazingly fabulous and having checked the lettering with magnification, it can be confirmed! You have scored a huge one!!!!"
"Since it has a lid, I am thinking like you said earlier that it might have been for Cream of Tartar. Since all of the spice jars are printed one liners maybe they just used the word Cream. I am really not sure."
"Hi. Popeye Brand peanut butter used glass mugs, but they didn't have this shape. The struggle is that until glassware is found with a label, it's difficult to determine if the piece was used to package food. "
"Welcome to the PYREX group!!! It appears as if you are new to this site, so a big welcome overall! I see you have an Etsy shop. Do you sell mid-century or your own creations? Please feel comfortable jumping right in by posting pictures (we all love…"
"Found in the box yesterday!!! I didn't know these shot glasses were Federal as they are unmarked and I love the name, "Rumpus Set." I feature these in my African-Americana book, but now I know so much more!"

Thanks for the wonderful welcome. I'm in eastern NC actually, closer to the coast. I am looking forward to being a part of this group. Vintage kitchen items are my weakness. Pyrex, Corning, Glasbake, etc. not to mention pots, pans and roasters. Bless him, my other half now picks right up on the "good stuff" at flea markets, thrift shops.....And he has a pretty good eye too, lucky me!
Hi Barbara, Thanks! Glad to be here! I don't think we've met, though. I've never been to Renningers. But I sell online and at the Olde Factory in Hummelstown. So maybe from there? If not, perhaps we will meet someday! :o)
I'll share one of my recent sales - Pyrex Butterfly Gold Compatibles, still in the sealed box!DSC_0027-001.JPG
I collect cartoon glasses and in that collection is included jelly glasses. I sent an email to that interest in fact, asking why not include jelly glasses to the group title like - "Peanut butter and jelly glasses including swanky swig" I mean the relationship goes about as well as fishing and hunting, doesn't it?
many thanks for your lovely greeting, i live in a village so the charity shops in the next town are oozing with jaj and pyrex, if anyone wants me to look out for anything in particular just let me know. i lost my original collection so starting again, i was pleased to pick up the chelsea print jaj set, photo on main wall, for 5 pounds, i would appreciate your feedback on it x x x
