This set has the very recognizable wheat sheaf going across the sides of the refrigerator dishes. The smaller #501 Autumn Harvest dish containers have no pattern on them and are that red-brown color. We often see the smaller size mixed in with other smaller 501 refrigerator dishes, often those in the Daisy/Citrus line.
By the way, if you’re looking up this pattern on Ebay, make sure to include the word “Pyrex” along with the search for “Autumn Harvest”, otherwise you’ll get a whole load of unrelated searches returned to confuse you.
This is the usual 4 piece set, with the aforementioned #501 sizes being 1.5 cups. The middle size #502 1.5 pint has the wheat sheaf motif on the side and is that slightly lighter orange-brown color. The largest #503 is 1.5 quart and is the red-brown color of the smallest dish, along with the wheat pattern. We see a lot of these sets broken up with the pieces sold individually.
