However, all of these items have a speckled look to the finish consisting of what looks like tiny spots or flecks of brown (on the yellow) or light red (on the pink) paint. From far away they look like solid colors with a bit of texture to the finish. Also known as: Speckle, Flecks, Desert.

These round casseroles came in Desert Dawn in pink and yellow. They are typical rounded bottom casseroles (as opposed to the 470/480 series which are more cylindrical in shape) and measure about 8 1/2″ in diameter while holding 2 quarts. They are a deeper casserole (nearly 3 inches) and came with standard clear glass knob lids.
The casseroles are marked 024 and the lids are 624. These are very commonly found without lid - they work fine without them.
