These Homestead Oven Refrigerator Boxes have that “speckled” look that only occurs on a few regular-line pyrex items (most notably on Forest Fancies). It’s a sort of dark brown speckle on lighter tan background.

All the sizes, #501 1.5 cup, #502 1.5 pint and #503 1.5 quart have the same speckled color along with clear lids, but the #501 smallest size which has two in the set does not have any other markings on it. The larger sizes have the familiar dark blue flower pattern on them. We’ve seen quite a few of these refrigerator sets complete as well as sold individually. The smaller 501 Homestead refrigerator dishes are often sold on Ebay with other refrigerator dishes of different colors and patterns.
