Feeling peckish? Close your eyes, and pick one. It was like a fun game of casserole roulette. Between watermelon-pink Gooseberry and classic blue Butterprint, these Pyrex baking dishes gave Southern casseroles and gelatin salads a little something extra.Now that vintage is back, and all things retro feel new again, we're scouring the field for any vintage Pyrex casserole dish we can find. From the limited-edition Lobster pattern to the festive Golden Poinsettias pattern, below you'll find 15 bakeware pieces that want a new home. Know anyone?
