This is referred to as a turnabout, and it is cold painted - meaning the paint was applied after it was fired, making it much more vulnerable to being removed.
I bought this cookie jar behind the counter, in the fancy-pants section of Goodwill. I expected it was going to be marked more than I'd pay for it, but was pleasantly surprised that it was $4.99. Not too bad at all. I think he (?) she (?) it (?) is going to live at our house, on top of the fridge.
But that's not the only thing I found in the fancy-pants section of Goodwill. I found pink gooseberry.
(Sorry, having a Wayne's World moment there :-)
It was actually just the largest (473) with a lid, and the smallest (471) with no lid, priced together for a gut-goozing, heartstopping, looking-around-for-Robin-Hood-to-save-you-from-the-highway-robbers price of .............
Why, I remember only a couple of years ago, when I confessed to an audience of no one on this humble little blog here that I paid the most I had ever paid for a single piece of Pyrex.
25 bucks for a pink Scroll spacesaver.
But it was pink. And I'd kick myself if I didn't have it.
So history repeats itself. Pink Pyrex, the bane of my wallets existence.
And it turns out that the largest piece is what I needed to finish my 470 set (also known as Bake Serve Store casseroles). I already had the smaller two, so I now have a duplicate that I may possible sell after I've loved on it enough to let it go.
Or not. LOL!
In my previous post, I mentioned I'd finished my Butterprint bowl set. Thought these two needed to share a shot.
|Hooray for complete sets!
Two of the most epic Pyrex sets ever, now complete. (Sorry, think I'm having yet another Wayne's World-flavored moment :-)
Hope you're finding cool treasures & tasty treats!
