Well, these beauties were NOT made to be disposable. They were made in a time when everything was made to be used and used and then handed down to someone else. Aren't they cute???
My sweet sister bought these for me at a garage sale and I absolutely LOVE THEM!! Thank you sis for thinking of me. I will think of YOU everytime I use these :)!!! In doing a little research on these, I learned that they are called Pyrex refrigerator bowls. These bowls are "BT," you know, "before Tupperware."
Sometimes "new and improved" isn't better. It's just new. And as I look at these refrigerator bowls I wonder about the person who bought them originally. Who was she? I wonder what she put in them? So now I'm on the lookout for more vintage Pyrex!
