Vintage Thingie Thursday- JAJ Pyrex Finds

Looking through back posts, I realized that I haven't participated in Vintage Thingie Thursday since October! That's too long, so without further ado I present to you my latest British Pyrex finds.

Harvest Pattern JAJ

This is the Harvest pattern, manufactured by JAJ. I think this is a cute pattern, but nothing can beat what I am going to show you next.

JAJ Pyrex Yellow and Orange Dish

Orange and yellow, my two favorite colors! I posted this in the Pyrex Love group on flickr and got some really good information!

In the UK in the early 70’s there was a renewed interest in traditional, even rustic products; Stripped Pine and Proven├žal pottery came into vogue. In 1974 Pyrex, JAJ introduced the short run ‘Rocco’ and ‘Sienna’ casserole ranges, exploiting a technique of over-spraying enamel colours to give a gentler, shaded effect to suit the new mood.

Your casserole is from the “Rocco” range and the pattern name is Rocco. From your photo of the back stamp I can see the number 509 and also a .5. just below the first letter N in England. The 509 is the cat. number for a 2pt Round Casserole and the .5. is the manufacturing date code, your casserole came off the press in Sunderland England in March-April 1975.

Thanks to Mackem 54 on flickr for this great info.

Vintage Thingie Thursday is now being hosted by Coloradolady! Check out the other submissions for this week and sign up for her amazingly generous giveaways this month.

LOL! Those are fantastic! Retro indeed! My mom probably still owns her's. The white with red/orange/yellow roosters & I believe flowers were with the pattern?.. I need to look online! Thanks for sharing this flashback ;-)

LMAO I found them! At this link, she's got the same as my mom: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ilovesoymilk/2818935806/in/set-72157604094390339/

I'm not sure if those are roosters or partridges or what, but this would be them ;-)

Oooooh !I love the veggie graphics and color on the top casseroles!

Those are so cute! Seeing things like this makes me want to save my stuff for my kids, even though I'm usually the type to cull often. But I guess that would deny them the joy of finding treasures on their own, or at least that's what I'll tell myself. :)

I LOVE those colors! it reminds me of candy corn! We had something similar to the ones at the top.

I got a really cool vintage pyrex at a garage sale this summer. It quickly became my favorite mixing bowl because it was the perfect size.

About a month ago, my 1 year old smashed it into a million zillion pieces on the kitchen floor. Gah!

Great pieces. :)
