Private Stash: Pyrex “Balloon”

Last weekend was cold and snowy, which led me to the decision to stay put in my warm house. Therefore I decided to go though my old pictures to find something to post on. I took these photographs over a year and a half ago so I guess it’s time to share. I found these during my crazed Pyrex addiction, which never really goes away. I found all three at our local Goodwill. At that time I usually paid around $0.99 per bowl, so imagine my joy when I found them!

This is a 1958 Pyrex promotional Cinderella chip and dip set in the “balloon” pattern. The large chip bowl is #444 (4 quarts) and the dip bowl is #441 (1.5 pints). The turquoise color and amazing hot air balloon graphics make this my all-time favorite Pyrex pattern. What is not to love?

I may have overindulged in my Pyrex obsession and now find myself overlooking it at sales, although there are certain patterns I would still love to add to my collection. At the top of that list is the divided dish “dandelion” pattern. Do you have a favorite Pyrex pattern?

    Just darling! I love this pattern. I’ll have to keep my eye out now in hopes of finding this Cinderella pattern. The dandelion pattern sounds cute too.
