LOVE THE BOOK!!
I have all the books on Pyrex and this by far is my fav. The layout is on point and easy to navigate. The pictures and Information are detailed for each piece. This is by far more educational than the others on the market.
Everything you need to know about Pyrex and much more! I have more pages marked for reference than my “ Post it Notes” has available. Great, history and pictures as well. Everyone interested in Pyrex this is a must have reference book!
Shiny, Happy, Pyrex People is a phenomenal tome (yes, tome- this baby is over 500 pages long) about Pyrex history written through the eyes of a seasoned collector who knows her audience. I’m proud to say I’ve interacted with the author on Facebook, where she is fount of knowledge on all things Pyrex. Ms. Ashley has done the collecting community quite a service: she has written a book that can be leafed through on a coffee table, skimmed by someone who appreciates beautiful glass, used as a reference by a newbie collector, and devoured by the Pyrex enthusiast.
One book, many uses.
The history of Pyrex is accompanied by beautiful pictures of the dishes themselves. I love the inclusion of the box art pictures as well- some of these are not seen in any other Pyrex book. I love the thoroughness of the pattern references. Additionally, the author has included non-standard pieces in case you stumble across one in your thrifting and antiquing. Additionally, the interspersed recipes and chats with collectors make this book feel like a friend. Huge thanks for such a delightful and informative work.
The complete Pyrex Reference Guide and History Book
Shiny, Happy Pyrex People is an amazing reference guide for antique enthusiast and those interested in the history of an iconic American brand. This book gives a detailed history of Pyrex by decade beginning in the early 1900’s through today. Easily find your favorite Pyrex cookware throughout the years. This book also offers a brief history on the Corning Glassware Company and the early days of Pyrex including the original Pyrex Patent(s).
The book also offers a detailed guide with pictures, sizes and dish numbers making it the ideal reference guide for all things Pyrex.
A highly recommended book for Pyrex people, antique people, history people or any person interested in the Pyrex product and Pyrex Company.
I have become a pyrex junkie. My collection has grown extensively the last couple years (lockdown). I loved reading and learning the history and seeing different patterns, and collections.
This book is massive with lots of great pictures and information. I love the timeline layout and I reference this book often. I enjoy the charts containing the dish numbers. It’s nice to know all the different pieces that were made in a particular pattern!
Really wonderful book!
At the Top of My Pyrex “Go To” Book List.
I have been enjoying having Shiny, Happy Pyrex People in my reach. When I want to have a few minutes of “me time” and take a break within my hectic day, it’s a nice therapeutic feeling to read all the great information, history, see the wonderful pictures and charts, interviews and the recipes in the book. It was also a privilege to meet you (Jennifer Ashley) at a book signing, to hear about how you gathered so much information.
This book is definitely at the top of my Pyrex information “go to” book list.
Tons of Information
Shiny, Happy Pyrex People is full of great information and pictures. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about Pyrex or is just getting started. As a new collector myself, this will be an invaluable reference and treasured book for many years to come.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!
I LOVE my new book! I keep it on my coffee table and have shared flipping through it with my 83 yr old mom and vintage-collecting sister. What a great resource – plus entertaining. It will be something I keep forever! Well worth the cost of shipping to Canada!
Great book, even for passive collectors!
I LOVE the book! It is VERY well done and has more information about Pyrex than I even knew existed. There are a ton of photos- even my kids were interested in looking at the book. They especially loved finding photos of the same pieces that we have. Buy this book. You won’t be disappointed!
Shiny, Happy Pyrex Couple!
My husband and I have recently started collecting Pyrex together. We enjoy the history behind the pieces and love the thrill of the hunt. Shiny, Happy Pyrex People has brought us lots of joy. Life can be crazy, but taking the time to collect and learn together has been the little pick-me-up our marriage needed! Thank you for playing a role in the process!
Details Make Me Happy!
I love a book you can refer back to time and time again and this book does just that! There are so many well researched facts and they are paired with human interest stories and in formation I haven’t found other places. This book is well worth the money.

I am a little biased here, but I am so proud of my amazing wife! She had a vision and attacked it with gusto. Her drive and focus during this whole process is incredible. Also, it’s a pretty good book ;-). All the feedback I have received from friends and family has been full of praise. I’m so proud of my Jenny!!! Hope you enjoy the book as well and may it lead you to that rare find in the wild!!!
I love the story line snd History

Pyrex is Americana as apple pie . And what we made our pie in as well.
