A New Pyrex Book is Here!

Shiny, Happy, Pyrex People is for old and new collectors alike. This Pyrex book covers a century of Pyrex history alongside the personal stories of some very, important people. Original photography highlights favorite patterns and invites you to explore lesser known pieces. I encourage you to use this resource to identify your Pyrex finds and to “go your own way” in your Pyrex pursuits.
