Pattern: Solid Colors
Identifiers / Alternate Names: Various color shades, but all completely solid colored on the Pyrex item. Also known as: Primary Colors, Multi-Colored, Yellow Red Green Blue
Pattern: Verde
Identifiers / Alternate Names: The Verde pattern is a bit confusing because it is characterized by solid colors of various shades of green for the mixing and cinderella bowls and refrigerator boxes, but the lids of the casseroles have distinct patterns. These patterns are greenish yellow olives and leaves and occur only on the lids. There is also some confusion with the so-called "Square Flowers" pattern that was marked as "Verde" on several original Pyrex boxes. For clarity, however, we are going to differentiate between the Square Flowers pattern as Verde as two separate patterns since they are quite different in style.

Pyrex Love - Verde Refrig

The Verde pattern refrigerator dishes have always been a collector favorite, though they’re quite common. These are standard sized, with two #501 1 1/2 cup dishes in a light yellow-green, one #502 1 1/2 pint avocado green dish and the largest #503 1 1/2 quart dish being a dark olive green. All of these had lids that were clear and are of the newer variety with no “blank” areas of glass.

Lately, we have come across one or two auctions for Verde refrigerator dish sets that have the largest #503 dish being an opal white with the mysterious green “Square Flowers” on it. Evidence has been mounting that the square flowers pattern was actually marked as Verde on original boxes… in which case it might be one of those all too familiar issues where Pyrex marked boxes with a general style or color (i.e. “Decorator” or “Hospitatliy”) and collectors later took that to mean the exact pattern name.

This has caused so much confusion, especially for us, in naming the patterns and keeping them straight in the reference. For now, we still aren’t 100% sure, but it appears that Verde may only be a “color” and not the pattern name. To keep matters straight, even if this turns out to be the case we’re still going to retain the “Verde” name for this set and call the other set another name, probably “Square Flowers”.

Lorraine from Black Dog Kitchen Collectibles was kind enough to let us use some of her photos of a full set of Verde Refrigerator dishes which are what you see on this page.
