Vintage Ceramic and Pyrex Items Picked

Just uploaded some very nice vintage ceramic and Pyrex we just picked. Most items are marked, including a 1954 ceramic piece.

Pyrex was created by Corning, Inc in 1915 for the use in laboratories. In the late 1930's the introduced a line of cooking and bakeware. These items could go from the refrigerator to the oven and back. So became the go to cooking items for housewives from the 40's until now.

Pyrex coffee pot. Part of the 1960s' Atomic kitchen.
Large casserole dish for making and storing casseroles.
Divided flat style casserole dish. Could be used for baking or serving deviled eggs.

Fenton Glass piece. Fenton Art Glass Company of making decorative pieces since 1905 in Williamstown, West Virginia in 1907. As with all good things in America the traditional glass production ceased operation in 2011 and now creates only handcrafted art glass jewelry using many of the traditional Fenton colors and techniques, such as Milk Glass, Vasa Murrhina and Carnival Glass beads.

Vintage depression glass candy dish. Depression glass of course started being made during the Great Depression. And has been highly collectible since. The quality of these pieces are not top notch with bubbles and mold marks being present, but they are still great home decor pieces.  

Made in Japan Swan Vase. During the 1960s Made in Japan meant poor quality to most Americans. Boy times changed. Japanese electronics companies such as Sony are seen as some of the best in the world. Japanese made tin robots from the 1950's can fetch up to $30,000 at auction. This little guy probably came from a florist with a flower arrangement. 
This little we couldn't pass up when we found it. What a great center piece for a holiday table. He is marked 1954 on the bottom.
