Golden Gooseberry Cinderella Bowls

This is a very unusual Gooseberry Pyrex color which is goldleaf on a beige pattern. It’s very reminiscient of the Golden Acorn pattern. We haven’t seen this color scheme too many times - definitely more rare than the black, yellow and white variety of gooseberry.

We aren’t certain about the actual numbers of these produced and whether or not it was a promo or special item. The pattern itself is an older one, dating from the 50s. For the Cinderella bowl set, the usual 4 bowls #441-#444 are present - the colors don’t alternate between the bowls like some sets. All four bowls are goldleaf gooseberry pattern on a very light beige-yellow color.

Thank you to HotforPyrex whose photo of the 4 bowls we’ve featured above. Note that goldleaf patterned pyrex items can be very susceptible to wear. Use caution when washing and storing them.
