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

You’ll almost always see this Butterfly Gold Oblong Open “Baker” pan listed as a “Lasagna Pan”. Something to keep in mind when searching for it. We don’t own any of these open bakers so we don’t have much info on it (as of Sep 06). But we know that the size has been listed as approximately 14 inches long, 9 inches wide and about 2 inches deep. This is a rather large sized piece of Pyrex that’s meant for roasting meat or veggies, and perhaps for cooking lasagna which is why that name has stuck.
It has the #933 stamped on the bottom. Since we don’t have these items, we can’t tell but I believe there is no capacity stated (like the 8×8 bakers) but that there are dimensions listed. I saw one auction that showed a stamp on bottom that said 13 1/2 x 8 3/4 x 1 3/4… which seems different than some of the others we’ve seen. I know that sometimes it is stated as 2 quart and other times as a 3 quart capacity but have no way to tell.
