These refrigerator dishes has the standard Early American pattern embossed on the front. This is the normal configuration of 4 separate boxes with lids. There are two of the smallest 1.5 cup #501 dishes with brown decorations on opal white. There are only a few decorations on the ends of these (I think it’s the cat, the pepper mill and the corn).

The middle sized refrigerator box has a few more decorations and is similarly brown on white with the size being 1.5 pints and number #502. The most interesting thing about this set comes with the largest #503 1.5 quart refrigerator dish because it is actually WHITE on brown. Most of the Early American set pieces that have brown as the background color have gold leaf. I’m not sure why they chose to make the refrigerator boxes different.

As far as I know, these came with clear lids and were the standard “newer” lids that have the ridges all over the top.
