There’s nothing like vintage Pyrex for charming style and high quality that last decades. The vintage patterns and colors that are so quaint compared to minimalist modern decor have become quite collectible, especially if you know what you’re looking for. Even something as common as everyday Pyrex still has a few limited run patterns here and there which tend to sell well. In mint condition they can bring in big bucks! Here are 9 of the rarest (and some of the costliest) Pyrex patterns for collectors.
9) Turquoise Diamond Mixing Bowl
This simple pattern mixing bowl comes in colors that anyone who loves vintage Pyrex is familiar with: turquoise and white. The round mixing bowl (pre-Cinderella bowls shape) was produced as a promotional item in the 1950s. Today these simple yet iconic mid-century bowls can sell for between $75 and $215!
8) Green Ivy Chip & Dip Set
For 1964 this patternwas produced as a promotional set. The Cinderella style bowls have a bracket which converts them from mixing bowls to hostess perfection in the form a chip and dip set. These sets can sell for between $20 and $100 depending on condition and whether or not the bracket is present.
7) Midnight Bloom Casserole Dish
Sold from 1970-71, the Midnight Bloom pattern is unique in that it’s dark, and somewhat ethereal (in contrast to the bright, cheery designs most commonly sought after). Because the pattern is so atypical the casserole dish now onlyy sells for between $30 and $75despite being a somewhat rare find.
6) Hot Air Balloon
This fanciful design was in production during 1958 as the promotional Cinderella bowl chip and dip set. Today these bowls can sell for anywhere from $20 a piece to $160 for the complete set with dip bowl bracket. The original cost of this set was $3.95!
