Pyrex Patterns: Gooseberry

Happy Monday, all! Did you have a good weekend? Maybe you got some items checked off that Christmas gift list? (Be sure and check back later today for another gift idea that's under $25!)

Today we're going to talk about the Gooseberry Pyrex pattern, inspired by a set of Cinderella mixing bowls I received from my great-aunt:





This set is missing the third bowl (it fits between the two with the white background), but that just means I get to keep an eye out so I can complete the set! :)

As I mentioned, these are Cinderella bowls, which have the fluted handles on them, and the pattern started being manufactured in 1957. The pink and white combo is the most common, but there two other color combinations: one that has black gooseberries with a white or yellow background, and one that has gold leaf berries on a beige background (this one is extremely rare, so if you have it, take care of it!).



Spot any familiar pieces your mom or grandma might have used when you were growing up? Or maybe you've collected them on your own? I'd love to hear about it!
