We’ve actually seen quite a few of these Bake Serve Stores casseroles in the Forest Fancies pattern in original boxes. They are the standard round casseroles that increase in height, with clear lids. The Forest Fancies pattern is brown speckled, similar to Homestead, and features mushrooms in a garden or forest setting. The sizes are .5 L, .75 L and 1 Lwith corresponding number #471-#473. As usual, the largest #473 liter size is the same item as the smallest of the Round Casseroles in this same pattern. We assume clear lids (though some have said that they came with brown speckled lids occasionally).
Update 11/07: This was listed as a 1983 release from information on the Pyrex Files, but we’ve since found it to be a 1981 release according to an official product brochure that Mackem 54 had scanned in.
