The Butterprint pattern Cinderella Bowls seem to be one of the most well known vintage Pyrex pieces. Chances are good that you’ll see a few at every flea market you go to. The reason is probably because the Cinderella Bowls have a very distinctive shape and the Butterprint scene is a very distinctive one.

For the Turquoise Cinderella Bowl set, there are 4 different sizes. The 1 1/2 pint (#441) and 2 1/2 quart (#443) sizes are white with the Amish scene printed on it in turquoise, while the 1 1/2 quart (#442) and 4 quart (#444) sizes are turquoise printed with white.

The whimsical Butterprint pattern is easily recognizable with the farmer and farmer’s wife scene along with corn motifs and roosters. We’ve seen varying dates of introduction for this pattern, but for the most part it’s agreed that it first appeared around 1957 to 1959.

Apparently, there exists a very rare 8oz No. 440 Cinderella bowl with the Turquoise Butterprint pattern. We have never owned one of these, but have seen a few listings for them recently.
