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.

With all the hard work that went into this book I was utterly disappointed when it arrived

It’s been on my shipping counter for 6 months and I’ve not opened it again since the first day.

No color pictures when we are dealing with patterns and the timeframe lay out is all over the place , the flow sucks

Response from Shiny, Happy Pyrex People

Good Morning! I am concerned with your comment regarding “no color pictures.” Shiny, Happy Pyrex People is a full color book with hundreds of original photos and historical advertisements. It covers Pyrex dishes from 1915 through 2015 and is arranged chronologically. Chapters are broken up by decade. I looked through our history of orders and did not come across your name or email. Did you buy directly from this website or from a third party? Can you provide me a picture of what pages you find lacking? Thank you!
