Once again these Gooseberry Pyrex items in pink are quite sought after, especially complete sets or those in boxes. The pattern is featured in pink on opal white - the color scheme does not alternate in reverse like some other patterns. We sometimes see dishwashed pink gooseberry and it breaks our heart - if you have these items keep them out of the dishwasher and they’ll keep their shine.
There are 4 items in the set, two #501 1.5 cup, a #502 1.5 pint and a #503 1.5 quart - all with clear lids. Here we’ve featured Halloweve1977’s photo of a Pink Gooseberry 501 and 502 refrigerator dish. You’ll note the “newer” lids - because of the older date on these items, we had thought these had “old lids” with that blank space in the middle of the lines. However, a quick tour of Ebay shows all newer lids. So we’ll have to say we’re unsure at this point.
