The Early American Cinderella Bowls are quite common to find in whole sets and are very reasonable. Some of that may have to do with the fact that the bowls are alternating gold leaf on brown and brown on white. Brown isn’t as popular a color with many collectors and kitchen owners as well, so there are quite a few of these around.
Here’s an example of the largest sized 4 quart Cindrella bowl:
This has the various Early American items on it in gold leaf. One thing with that gold leaf is that it often rubbed off or was scratched or faded and this is rather noticeable, so it might be harder to find extremely mint versions.
There are 2 bowls in the set that are brown with gold pattern and they are this #444 4 quart bowl and the #442 1 1/2 quart. The #441 1.5 pint smallest bowl and the #443 2.5 quart bowl have the same pattern but in brown on an opal white bowl.
One interesting thing is that they also made a Promotional Chip and Dip set that utilized the #444 4 quart brown bowl as shown for the chips, along with a #441 1.5 pint bowl for the dip. The small dip bowl, however, wasn’t brown on white in this case. It’s the same color scheme as the chip bowl - gold on brown. Because that small bowl exists in brown, you may find a set of the 4 bowls that have 3 gold on brown and only 1 white on brown (the #443) because someone collected the bowls one at a time and ended up getting a #441 “dip” bowl in brown instead of white.
