The smaller cups/mugs are the heavier restaurantware and remind me of old time diners.
Now the cups.

They are marked “Pyrex…Made in Canada” which didn’t mean alot to me. But I found this excellent reference – Canadian Depression Glass by Walter Lemiski – that told me that these pieces were likely made in the 1940s.
The pattern is called Piecrust because the design resembles the fork marks on a pie crust (I think).
I love the delicate colour.
One of my daughters (the 28 year old) told me recently that she wants to have vintage white dishes for her table. Of course I love any excuse to buy vintage stuff. She entertains and loves to set a nice table.
I was very excited thinking that she would love the Fire King stuff. After all, it IS white. However, I gather that the gold trim is not to Miss Thing’s liking. She does like the Bubble bowl though. Whew, lucky break!
Anyway – more Fire King here…but….. I’m NOT buying any more!!!!!! I MEAN it!!!!! No more…….unless it’s super cheap that is!
