These are the standard round casseroles with increasing diameter in the Homestead pattern. They were introduced in 1976 and were meant to resemble colonial-inspired folk-art designs on crockery and earthenware. There are three in the set: 1 quart, 1.5 quart and 2.5 quart - remember the smallest 1 quart 473 is the same as the Bake-serve-store set largest casserole.

We believe that while it was most commonly produced in a blue Homestead pattern, there are some round casserole sets that were produced with brown. The lids for these items are interesting in that they were sometimes clear and sometimes the same speckled brown color as the base. We have also seen a few that had a clear brown lid, but are unsure if those were mismatched lids.

Update (9/2008): They were sold with the clear brown, or “amber” lids at times as well. Pyrexboy78’s photo below shows the original box for the set which also features the Homestead pattern in a brown color. It’s unclear whether the brown Homestead pattern always came with the amber lids or not.
