Delphite Blues

April 30, 2012

Some of you might know that I collect vintage Pyrex. I can't get enough of the bright colours and patterns, and I definitely have my fair share of the stuff. My absolute favourite, though, is what's known as delphite.

It's an opaque light blue glass, a lot of which was produced in Canada. Delphite Pyrex is considered to be pretty rare, and I have to admit that I tend to agree with this. The only pieces I've ever seen were in antique stores and usually with a pretty hefty price tag. When I see something with a decent price, I snap it up!

And although this weekend was positioned firmly at the not-very-productive end of the life scale, Saturday afternoon was spent at the Roadshow's 400 Antique Mall in Innisfil. While there, I came across a 12" delphite plate. There was a saucer as well, but it had a large chip and wasn't worth buying.

I bought the delphite plate, as well as a really cool old milk glass plate with a "lace" edge.

I already had the sugar bowl, which is unfortunately missing it's friend the creamer. I also have a delphite "fridgie with the corresponding delphite lid.

Does anyone else collect something? Mike collects all things Mr. Peanut/Planters.
