I love pyrex dinnerware! Well in this case it’s not actually pyrex, but Arcopal glass, a toughened glass very similar to pyrexware, just a bit milkier. And I love the 1970s pattern – ‘Scania’ – no idea why it’s called that, but it’s lovely to look at! There’s some wear to the pattern, and the glass has some fine scratches, but given that the dishes are in the region of forty years old, they’re really not doing too badly!

P.S. These dishes are quite deep – would make good pasta dishes or even shallow soup bowls

Dimensions: Each dish measures 22cm in diameter x 3cm deep

Price: R140 for the set
