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

Sizes and ID#s: #963 (1.5 quart)

As far as I know, the Divided Dish in the Butterfly Gold pattern is very similar to the Cinderella Oval Casserole in that it has a white lid with the Butterfly Gold pattern in a circle with a single flower in the middle. Unlike a lot of other divided dish patterns, the actual lid here is not divided. The casserole base is actually that familiar gold-brown-orange color, but without any pattern marking on it.

The size of the dish is a standard 1 1/2 quart with the #963 number on the base. I rather like the divided dish casserole and we have several in different patterns, but we still have not had the opportunity to serve a lot of meals in them.
