On my most recent visit to the thrift store, I discovered an abundance of vintage white baking dishes. I found the patterns so cheery and the prices so reasonable that I couldn't resist picking up a few. Plus my mom was with me and she got her senior's discount, for another 10% off. These dishes were all $2 or $3 each to begin with. Practically a steal, no?
The largest dish of the four, this floral design bakeware with matching lid has no stamp on it at all. Not sure where it comes from. Anybody have an idea what the pattern or maker is?
This retro orange and brown beauty is a JAJ England dish. JAJ produced Pyrex bakeware in England from 1922 until 2007. Items were stamped JAJ (for James A Jobling) until the mid-1970s.
This dish with the lovely fruit pattern is Fire King. The pattern is a bit faded, but still pretty. There is a small chip in one handle, which I noticed - of course - just after I paid for it. At least it's not a sharp edge!
This lovely little bowl with the purple leaves is a Federal Glass Company piece (with an "F" in a shield on the bottom). I don't know how old it is, but I think the purple pattern has a very contemporary look. Its small size makes it convenient for using in food photos.
Of course, I'm having trouble finding room for all these beauties in my cupboard. Mom suggested I stick to collecting one pattern in future, but where's the fun in that?
Do you collect vintage baking dishes? Do you stick to one pattern or maker?
