Through the years, Pyrex has produced some striking patterns that have been included on their mixing bowls. One such pattern is aptly named “Gooseberry”. It’s been called many things over the years but this is the primary name for this pattern. It consists of gooseberry leaves and berries, and thus the came the name. It’s most commonly seen in either a primary pink with white pattern (or reversed white with pink pattern) or a more rustic and vintage look of black pattern on either a solid white or yellow bowl. Let’s take a look at some of the pink pyrex gooseberry mixing bowls first and then move on to the yellows.

These mixing bowls are simply delightful when going for a more retro/vintage appeal in your kitchen. With their soft opal white and tender pink designs, Gooseberry Pyrex mixing bowls were an all-time favorite. This pattern first arrived back in the 1950′s. With it’s graceful design of leaves and striped berries, this is a classic for any home. Not to mention the handy pour spots that doubled as holders, these were the mixing bowls of popular homes back in the 50′s and today as well.
Gooseberry Yellow Cinderella Mixing Bowls
Although the pink Gooseberry bowls were certainly more popular, these yellow and white Pyrex gooseberry cinderella bowls were certainly not far behind in popularity. From everything that I could find out about them, I believe they were only sold in sets of four originally, although single bowls can still be purchased quite frequently. They are the same size as all other quad set pyrex mixing bowls and are marked with the usual sizes #441 through #444 alternating in color from a cream colored yellow to a milky white. These were bowls you weren’t afraid to get dirty in the kitchen.

Personally, I’m a much bigger fan of the Yellow/White with black gooseberries than the pink. And I think they are actually a little harder to find as everywhere I’ve looked I’ve definitely seen more of the pink/white than the yellow/white gooseberry combination.
