The standard Round Butterprint Casseroles seem to be all over the place, but it can be difficult to put together a set of them because there seem to be many different sizes and colors. As stated before, they share a size with the Bake Serve Store casseroles (the #473 1 quart size) and that set has two different color variations. I’m not completely clear yet whether or not these round casseroles also have two different color variations, but so far it seems like they only have one, which is the standard alternating color scheme.
This color scheme starts out with the #473 1 quart being white on turquoise, the #474 1.5 quart being reversed turquoise on white, and the #475 largest 2 quart being white on turquoise again. I don’t believe they were sold as 3 pieces all turquoise on white, but again, the #473 IS available in white on turquoise from the Bake Serve Store casseroles. This actually happened to us: we had bought a #473 white on turquoise from Bake Serve Store and a #474 white on turquoise from the Round casseroles thinking they were part of the same set. So we thought that the larger #475 would be turquoise on white, but it’s only available in the reverse!
Below are the 2 casseroles that we were talking about, that we believe are from 2 different sets, one smaller Bake Serve Store casserole and the other larger Round casserole:
