Pyrex makes perfect, especially in Flamingo Pink!
This platter is one of an identical pair offered at Redbud Creek. For consistency, I am here providing the description for my Pyrex Pink Flamingo 12" Round Platter #2.
They are equally beautiful.
Bright and cheerful and in knockout vintage condition, this 12" round, Pink Flamingo Pyrex platter brings a party of its own right to the table. The opal milk glass shines and the big band of color is detailed with a fine edge of gold inside and out. This pattern presents with the very best of 1950's dinnerware design. Casual meets elegant and modern convenience joins in.
It is without chips, without stains and still remarkably Pyrex smooth, having somehow escaped the utensil scratches typically found on glass plates of any age.
In an excitement of contrast, the bold pink border encircles and frames the white. It has extremely minimal wear. This platter was cared for, and over the years no doubt cherished for the special charm of its 'modern' design.
Pyrex Opalware glass is temperature-resistant. (The enamel-strong surface allowed for colorful patterns to be applied in a silk screening process unique to the Pyrex Trademark.)
Several other pieces of Pyrex Pink Flamingo are available here at Redbud Creek on Ruby Lane. They include dessert bowls, cereal bowls and a second 12" round platter. They are from the same vintage collection and all are in equally wonderful condition.
