Pattern: Square Flowers
Identifiers / Alternate Names: The Square Flowers pattern features 4 petaled flowers or clovers in a squarish configuration. It appears in two possible colors - verde green on white and darker orange on yellow-orange. We are listing this pattern separately even though its exact origin is unknown up to this point: several original boxes that had green square flowers on them were marked as "Verde" which adds to the confusion. The pattern has been noted on a variety of different items. The extent of the orange version of the square flowers is not known - it seems to appear mostly on round casseroles, but we don't know if it is a promotional-only item or not. Also known as: Dutch Clover, Green Flower, Avocado
Item Type: 470 Series Cinderella Bake-Serve-Store Casserole Set

Sizes and ID#s: #471 (1 pint) #472 (1.5 pint) #473 (1 quart)
This is the orange version of the Green Square Flowers pattern that has caused some confusion with Pyrex patterns (because of its mislabeling as “verde”). However, we are pretty certain that the Orange Square Flowers appears only on certain casseroles. The row of square flowers looks pretty similar to the green one, except that there are two rows on these items. Update (6/07): It’s come to our attention that the smaller casseroles (the 1 pint and 1.5 pint) apparently had only ONE row of flowers instead of the two. That’s very interesting… so 471, 472 have one row and 473 (and of course the 474, 475 larger round casseroles) have two rows. Update (10/07): We now have one of the smaller 471 casseroles, seen in the photo above, so we can confirm that there is indeed only one row of flowers for this item.
The flowers are a cream-tan in color with the base of the casserole being a darker orange-brown. These casseroles exist in the usual three sizes of 1 pint, 1.5 pint and 1 quart, all with the same diameter… that’s the way to tell them apart from the Round Casseroles, because they don’t increase in diameter. The numbers are #471-473 and as usual the largest #473 size is the same piece as the smallest of the Round Casseroles.
