The Old Orchard bowl pattern is sort of interesting because the design imprinted on the bowl is sort of rougher in texture. It looks almost hand drawn and depicts fruits like apples, cherries, grapes peaches(?) and pears along with the leaves from the grapes.

The color of these bowls is also very interesting being a sort of orangey-brown, or as some sellers have written “dark gold” in color. It also has a “sunburst” glaze type of appearance where the color seems to blend from dark gold to brown at the top.

I believe these bowls were only made in the 300 series sets, without the largest bowl, though I could be wrong. In any case, the sizes are the usual (though in metric, I believe): 401 750 ml, 402 1.5 L and 403 2.5 L. The fruit inscription is in dark brown and it’s interesting because it doesn’t go around the entire bowl in a band as do many other mixing bowl designs. We’ve actually seen quite a few original sets in boxes, at least the 300 series sets.
