.... could be worth a fortune :yahoo
I found I had one, maybe more if I look in all cupboards!
Basically 1970s Corning Ware.
Check it out on eBay!
I will come back with a link when I find it.

Yeah.. well I used mine and ultimately, they all ended up smashed on the floor. My bad. Been thinking I need a couple of casserole type ware. Need to check out the Salvos.

wife found some pyrex type glass pots at one of those $2 variety shops .. they were only about $4 each, complete with lids, so she thought she'd try them .. been in and out of the oven mulitple times now and no problems.

I was surprised. I thought they'd crack with the first use.

yes I did that.. a glass dish ? Pyrex.? Amazingly, I'd only just gone to check on it ( stovetop).. and 10 seconds later
AFTER I was sitting down, it literally exploded.

Yeah .. freaked out.

tHAT WAS A CLOSE ONE.

I am still on the lookout for some good dishes, etc.
I've been using a Pyrex plate ..genuine,, for baking things in the oven.
I had two, but dropped one on my hard floor.

I'll never put another glass item on a bare gas flame, but OVEN..? :thumb

Well,we could put Pyrex beakers and flasks on the bunsen burner in the lab. . .and I used to put Pyrex beakers and flasks directly on the stove when creating a yeast starter for beer or mead.

I was given a few large pieces over the years, hated them and got rid of them as soon as I could. I still think it’s ugly, especially the large cassarole dishes with ‘autumnal’ decorations . ERK ! Like all those hiddeous sideboards, televisions, coffee tables etc from the 1950’s with angled legs. They were ugly, are ugly and always will be.
Groupthink will destroy us all.

There’s something else that’s astonished me, getting nice prices on eBay, just type in straw, weave, wicker baskets etc.
Maybe with word vintage, I have such a lot of it in bathroom cupboards, with stuff in them, and stored elsewhere no longer using them, so this I stumbled across them on eBay, wow, people are nuts, buying what I thought was crap, even a little straw weaved duck I bought for .50 c with a little teddy bear in it recently from a garage Saks, it’s worth about $27 on eBay!
Well I’m decluttering quicker now!

BTW karlrand, what’s the obsession with avatars of old nuns? :giggle
Reminds me of that Irish comedian Dave Allen, who said the nuns at his school were like gestapo in drag.

Ahh Dave Allen. Now that is a name I've not heard for a while.

What an utterly iconoclastic rebel he was. BRILLIANT. I doubt it would be allowed these days.. much too controversial
