Pyrex Love - Butterprint Refrig Box

The Butterprint pattern Refrigerator Dishes are really popular, and in fact the entire line of refrigerator boxes (marketed originally as Oven Refrigerator) are a very distinctive and desirable type of collectible Pyrex. Above is a picture of the original Butterprint box that these came in courtesy of Teri from Copperton Lane Antiques. Note the box number is 500-0-TBP… I believe “TBP” stands for Turquoise Butterprint.

Unlike the Turquoise Butterprint Cinderella Bowls, I don’t believe these refrigerator sets came in reversed “white on turquoise” shades. However, there are solid color Turquoise refrigerator sets.

There are 3 different sizes, two of the smallest 1 1/2 cup (#501) sizes dishes and then there are the 1 1/2 pint (#502) size and 1 1/2 quart (#503) size.

One note with these refrigerator dishes is that the lids tend to break pretty easily. Thus, you’ll often see them for sale without lids. There are, however, people who sell just the lids. In addition, there are different types of lids with the earlier ones having finer ridges going across and areas of blank flat glass instead of ridges across the entire width of the lid.

Here are some more pictures of the different sizes courtesy of Ivy Mueller.
