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

I was getting a bit tired of typing out the Butterfly Gold pattern differences, so I’ll just say that they are identical to the mixing bowls. Interestingly, we’ve seen boxes for these bowls and they are listed as Compatibles which meant that they were to be used with matching Corelle Butterfly Gold plates and dinnerware.
The larger 4 quart bowls are sometimes harder to find although I do believe they were sold along with every set (as opposed to the normal mixing bowls where there’s a chance it was sold as a 300 set with only 3 bowls).
