Fire-King Batter Bowls!

Hi Friends:

One of my most vivid childhood memories is that of my mom making corn muffins or whipping up pancake batter in her Fire-King batter bowl. Every time I use mine, I think of her, and I can't tell you how often I use this bowl! 
Fire-King is an Anchor Hocking brand of glassware that was made from the 1940s to the 1970s for everyday use. This glassware comes in a variety of colors. The jade green color known as Jade-ite was made popular by Martha Stewart. Fire-King pieces were popular as promotional items back in the day. Batter bowls were given away with the purchase of flour. The Fire-King line of dishware is sought after by collectors and can be found in antique malls and flea markets.  I love that its durable, utilitarian and filled with nostalgia. Should you acquire a piece, do not put it in the dishwasher as the harsh detergent and high water temperature will etch and dull the finish over time.
Georgia's has been on the hunt for Fire-King batter bowls; we have three colors in our inventory: Jade-ite, white and ivory. Contact us for more information!
