The Miracle of Genuine Pyrex Collections

I love looking at collections of toys, TV, video game and movie memorabilia, but I also have a soft spot for the colorful cookware made by Pyrex. Not only is it wonderful to look at, but it is also useful. Which is why whenever I get the opportunity to pick up some for my kitchen at a reasonable price, I do. A great thing about this type of collecting, especially for new collectors or people who are not hardcore chefs is that you might already have the appropriate space for showcasing your collection still available, you kitchen cupboards (although some of us may have already filled them with action figures). Now my collection is small, but the web is filled with people who are living with large collections of this miracle of the modern age. Here are a few of my favorite online collections.

    When I was a kid, we had a couple big white pyrex bowls with blue floral designs around the sides. In fact, I think the one in the first pic, top row, second from the left, bottom of the stack, might be the same model. We didn’t have lids for them though (possibly they broke early on, or maybe we never had them at all).

    Ah! Popcorn memories!
    The large white bowl with blue designs at the bottom of the third pic and at the top in the fifth is what we had for consumption of mass quantities of popped goodness while watching TV movies in the good old (but commercial-laden) 80s.

    Good, crunchy, times.

    My molar memories need a toothpick now.
