6herry - a nice dish,and a bargain, it looks brand new, is this white type still manufactured do you know? Sainsburys do promotions once in a while and there is only plain glass jugs etc. and also non stick baking equipment, I have only got the glass type. I've just seen the photo of your second purchase, now that is proper vintage
As far as I know there are no more white with patterns on sale.
They do come with a distinct disadvantage though. The patterns fade in dishwashers, and for that reason, they are probably never going to make them again. But they clean really easy in hot water, a mild scourer and washing up liquid.

Brilliant post 6herry. I have a clear pyrex dish that I use to make fruit crumble but I would not say it is vintage yet! Regarding dishwashing - don't expect anything you have to be dishwasher safe if it was manufactured before dishwashers were invented! I have some lovely. traditional old pudding bowls that could well have been handed down from my grandmother which I keep rescuing from my dishwasher.
I have a set of lidded Pyrex dishes - some are clear glass and some are tinted. Very handy for allsorts. Handed down from my mum. I also remember her having some white ones, and think she still uses a couple. You tend to see them in charity shops a lot - I guess when people pass away and the relatives clear out the houses, many of these are found in backs of cupboards.
I am thinking of my mum and dad when I see this 6herry, I think they had one of these gravy/sauce boats, not this pattern though, they had the flowers, yellow and brown, and I remember cups with a pattern of red lines around the rim. Is this the start of your collection, or have you been buying for a while? I am wondering where all my mum's pyrex ended up?
