Vintage Pyrex : Primary Color Mixing Bowls
These primary color nesting bowls were the original colored bakeware produced by Pyrex and are by far the most popular of all the nesting bowl sets. When many people think of Pyrex this is what comes to mind. The 4 bowl set was introduced in the 1940′s-1970′s and were a staple in many housewives kitchens.
In the ad below from 1955 you can see all of the colors and sizes and look at the price! We got lucky with our set since Shayne’s parents gave it to us. His dad found it while he was cleaning the garage. This set consists of a 1.5 pint blue bowl, 1.5 quart red bowl, 2.5 quart green bowl, and a 4 quart yellow bowl.
