Rameking Reference Number PYR At the beginning of this blog is the statement that a lot of these ramekins are coming onto the market as people pass away. Such is the case with these. I bought them from a man who does house clearances. They were most likely a wedding present back in the mid s. Pyrex is a name for glassware introduced by the American Corning and Incorporated in Originally Pyrex was made from borosilicate glass. Their website tells the story that their scientists developed a heatproof glass for railway lanterns.

I have been spending a little time hitting up the sales. Estate sales, garage sale and a couple of auctions. And finally bought the Hazel Atlas measuring cups. That have the “Kellogg’s” brand name embossed in the bottom of the cup. These depression glass, measuring cups were mass produced. And had been part of a give away from Kellogg’s many decades ago.

And I seem to go through periods where I see them everywhere. I decided that it might be time to purchase a couple of them.

I used a picture of a box sold on Trade Me in order to remake the graphics. I recall well how they were heavily advertised on television in the late s and early s — it was on relentless rotation! However it may have been forgotten that Surprise were around long before that; as far back as the s in New Zealand with pea and bean products — both dried and frozen.

Initially I wrote this article on the premise that the Surprise brand likely started out as a subsidiary of J. History is confusing around how the Crest brand passed from one owner to the next.

Advice on equipping a kitchen in the 19th century Catherine Beecher had firm ideas about what was needed for a well-run household. Her list for the s kitchen in the USA included: In a prosperous American household in a “prudent and generous mistress” would supply her cook “with ample provision of all such things as her important department requires All these articles are indispensable, and there are a great many other useful implements which modern ingenuity has brought into use, and which it would be well to introduce into a fully-arranged kitchen.

Mary Ann Bryan Mason A book aimed at an English couple setting up home in a small cottage in the first half of the 19th century advised: A good copper tea-kettle is the most durable this is an article I don’t know how to persuade you to do without, though some writers cry out bitterly against it. The round shape will be two or three shillings cheaper than the oval, and bears mending better. It is not quite so fashionable, but that you have too much good sense to mind.

The beauty of a copper kettle is in its durability and brightness, not its shape; and the two or three shillings saved will buy you a handy little saucepan, or gridiron, or frying-pan: You should have two strong iron pots, of different sizes; one or other of which, I hope, will be in frequent use. I would wish a working man to have a bit of something hot most days. One pot might do, but not so well, for this reason, you cannot boil anything large in a small pot; and though you might boil what is small in a large one, there would, by so doing, be more firing and time taken up than is necessary.

For any very nice, particular purpose, such as boiling milk, starch, or gruel, there is nothing answers better than bell-metal or brass, which also lasts long. A Nottingham-ware [brown stoneware] pot, with a lid, to hold a gallon or two, is very useful; especially if you have an oven:

Pyrex glass ovenware Pyrex glass ovenware has been essential kitchen equipment since the early twentieth century. It was first marketed in the UK just after the First World War and became a hit with many households. Top London stores Harrods and Selfridges proudly advertised Pyrex cookware.

Saturday, February 6, Fiestaware Identifying Marks Any lover of the thrift knows to scoop up Fiestaware if found on the cheap. The rare find being an exciting score for it’s vibrant colors, distinguishable style, and if you know how to spot vintage, its lucrative possibilities. New or old Fiestaware is a welcome and uncommon thrift store find, it just so happens the latter won’t bode well for resale. As it typically stands I’m one to find out how to recognize a valuable piece post sale and a not so valuable piece post purchase.

And so it goes with the recent score of Fiestaware mugs and saucers. They sure are pretty but a SwagBucks search later and I discover I could head right over to Macy’s to complete a nice little breakfast set. Take a look at this logo, it’s an ink printed logo and the letters are all capitals.

The name was sold off to a company that went bankrupt. Fern One more reason I will prize the old Pyrex baking dishes handed down from my grandmother. Brian Too This seems like a very plausible failure mode for a dish. Just imagine accidentally burning a casserole. Lots of people would take the dish out of the oven and put it in the sink, either with or without water in the basin.

So, I found my first one at an antique store in Comfort, TX near where I lived … a 4 oz Evenflo glass bottle with the black ring and disc- perfect! It was the black ring and disc that were the hardest to find, as well as the vertical Evenflo name on one of the sides of the bottle. The local Salvation Army Thrift Store manager would see things come in and hold them for me I was in there many times a week- big entertainment in the small Texas town I was living in.

That grew into wanting to get a bigger representation of how babies were fed over the many, many decades of bottle-feeding. Evenflo bottles- from the early Pyrex Evenflo bottles to the vintage translucent pastel plastic bottles. Nipples are always the biggest issue in getting a complete bottle, as latex deteriorates over time. Once I discovered eBay in , it was game on!

I also got some really old hospital nursery bottles from Similac, Enfamil, SMA, Wyeth, and some others I have no clue about, other than some vague assumptions about the general time period they likely came from. Well, eBay to the rescue again! Note the aqua box in the second photo- more on that in a minute! Before nipples, pieces of wool, leather, or even wood would be stuffed in the hole at the feeding end, so the flow rate adjustment would be even more critical.

Latex was a huge deal in improving feeding safety. Various hospital newborn nursery and pediatric floor bottles- from the 50s — early s; also Storck Rexall , and other drugstore type bottles for use in homes.

Here is the scoop Glasbak was the original spelling for McKee’s ovenware, but was changed to Glasbake sometime later. Thatcher Glass sold the Mckee factory in the s to Jeanette Glass. Markings Glasbake made by Jeanette after usually have a J prefix followed by a number on the bottom of each piece. You will also see sellers refer to their items as “Glassbake”. And some sellers refer to every kind of ovenware as “Glassbake”.

From Oven to Refrigerator The beauty of “Glasbake” was that it was designed to be able to be used for cooking, serving and storing. More and more, returning to the use of glass in today’s kitchen is becoming popular on environmentally conscious homeowners. You will find some later editions of Gla sbake mugs actually marked Microwave safe. The Florences suggest testing earlier mugs by putting them in the microwave for ten seconds and seeing if the mugs gets hot.

Whittaker and Sons , J. If you want to read about the history of this iconic brand and huge chain of grocery stores, I wrote about it here. At least a couple of those were substantial.

The black Pyrex mug was one of about eight in the store- I only bought one, just to have (again) one in every color, but now I am wishing I had bought them all. They look amazing with my cinnamon colored ones and would be great for Halloween displays.

Grimsby, Ontario, Ships to: There are no significant scratches, rubs; No hazing, nor stains – perhaps a bit of baking residue present in the outer edge, mold-seam glass-overflow – gently used. There are three very small chips and some tiny flea-bites along the upper inner angular edge. There is also a small stress mark, or two opposing scratches, or a very slight crack at the very outer edge – there is no separation of glass, or sign of glass disturbance – so perhaps are opposing scratches from handling.

Reverse-embossed on the bottom button: Pyrex released many more ovenware items in and has continued to do so ever since. Backstamps are helpful for dating pieces in conjunction with the product s which appear on most not all PYREX pieces. Pie-plates were first released “rimmed” – meaning that a flat and distinct rim was affixed or molded into the form of the pie-plate.

This pie-plate was discontinued in , along with the Pie-Plate.
