Pattern: Spring Blossom Green
Identifiers / Alternate Names: Shares same elements of pattern with "Crazy Daisy", and is often counted as variations of one pattern with Crazy Daisy being the "earlier" version. Solid and outlined green flowers on white (or reversed) are the basic pattern. Spring Blossom often has fan-shaped 4 leaf clusters instead of three leaf ones as well as dots that are both colored in and hollow. There are no single leaf motifs as well. Also known as: Crazy Daisy, Daisy Flowers, Spring Daisies, Green Flowers

Although the Oven Refrigerator Dishes in the Spring Blossom pattern are one of the more common sets, they’re also the most popular with collectors. The green of the Spring Blossom pattern is actually an dark olive in color, almost like the “Verde” green you see with mixing bowls.
The two larger size refrigerator boxes which are the #503 1 1/2 quart and #502 1 1/2 pint pieces are that deep verde green in color with the Spring Blossom pattern embossed in white. The full set includes two of the smaller #501 1 1/2 cup sizes which are opal white with the pattern in verde green. All of these refrigerator boxes came with clear lids and I believe all of them originally had the newer lids with no areas of “blank glass” on them.
Once again, for more information on the confusion on newer and older patterns please read this page.
