We know very little about the off-color Butterprint items, except that they do exist and are generally more rare than turquoise Butterprint. If you do a seach on Ebay there’s always a lot of turquoise butterprint dishes and only one or two Orange or Pink Butterprint items.
At least it’s pretty clear which items that Orange Butterprint patterns appear on, and that is on Cinderella Mixing Bowls. Unlike the Turquoise Cinderella ones, the color scheme does not alternate normal and reversed among the bowls. There are 4 Cinderella Mixing bowl sizes, #441 1 1/2 pints, #442 1 1/2 quarts, #443 2 1/2 quarts and #444 4 quarts and all of them are orange on white in color. I’ve called it orange, but others call it yellow or yellow-gold.
I don’t think this was a promotional item but just that it was manufactured for release only during a certain period of time. But it seems like it is given the short supply compared to the turquoise items.
Update 3/08: Recently spotted a boxed set for the first time with a 440-SP number on it.
