From the bit of research that I did on these Fire King salad plates (they’re a wee bit smaller than dinner plates, but bigger than side plates), it would seem that this particular range of Fire King pyrex was designed for the restaurant industry, which makes complete sense given that I found so many of them! I would have thought that they wouldn’t be quite as valuable, being restaurant-ware, but that logic doesn’t seem to hold water when you look at what these plates sell for online – anything from $17 for a single plate to a whopping $160 for a set of 8! Silly money really. Fortunately all 18 of these plates are in great condition, with no obvious signs of wear. I don’t think too many of us are in the restaurant business, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t take advantage of these hard-wearing plates in our homes! Three beautiful sets of plates that promise to wear will over the years – not quite kid-proof, but close as!

Dimensions: Each plate measures 23cm in diameter

Price: R130 per set of 6
