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

We’re not 100% sure about how many Pyrex items have this particular Square Flowers pattern. So far, it seems like the square flowers occurs in orange only on Round Casseroles and Bake-Serve-Store Round Casseroles. In contrast, there are quite a few items that have the Green Square Flowers pattern.
The first thing you notice about these casseroles is that there are TWO rows of the square flowers instead of just one as on the equivalent green casseroles. The color of the casserole base is a tan-orange color, with the 4-petal square flowers being more of a cream-tan in color. The lids, as far as we know, are the standard clear lids. The sizes on these casseroles are the usual #473-475 with capacities of 1 quart, 1.5 quart and 2.5 quart.
