Pattern: Butterfly Gold
Identifiers / Alternate Names: Various butterflies and five petaled flowers. Most commonly a yellow-brown pattern on white, though the reverse of white on yellow-brown also exists. Two distinct pattern variations exist for various items - one has just the butterflies and flowers while the other has those items embedded on "wheat stalks", much like the Autumn Harvest pattern. Some lids feature a ring of butterfly gold with a single flower in the center, and the smallest size refrigerator box contains a single flower. Some other items (mugs and some casseroles) may not have butterflies in the pattern and only flowers. Also known as: Golden Butterflies, Five Petal Flowers

This Bake Serve Store Casserole set was produced in the 1960s-70s, but because we don’t have them I’m not sure if they were metric capacities or not. We’ll list them as both for now. There are two different color and pattern varieties again of this 3 Casserole set, which ran number 471-473 with sizes of 1 pint, 1.5 pint and 1 quart respectively. As usual, these casseroles are the same diameter; it’s just the depth that changes. This distinguishes them from the Cinderella Round Baking Set in Butterfly Gold, but again remember that the sets shared a same size casserole, #473.
The first set variety is the “normal” pattern with the smallest being white on orange-brown, the middle size being reversed, and the largest 1 quart being white on orange-brown colored again. The second set variety has the butterfly gold pattern on a “wheat sheaf”. In this set, I don’t believe the second bowl is a “reversed” color scheme with the orange-brown on white. Instead, the second bowl is a somewhat lighter orange in color.
The lids in all of these cases should be clear with no patterns on them. Here’s a picture of the smallest 1 pint #471 bake-serve-store casserole courtesy of Ivy Mueller.
