Town and Country Version 1
The Mixing Bowl Set (401, 402 and 403)
contained three solid colored bowls in brown, orange and pastel yellow,
respectively. The Cinderella Set (441, 442, 443 and 444) contained the same
color scheme on the smaller bowls, but the largest bowl (4 Qt, 444) contained an
orange and brown pattern. The same orange and brown pattern also appeared on the divided dish (063) and two sizes of oval casseroles (043 and 045).
Round casseroles contained yet another pattern: a brown hex pattern on all bowls. The 470 Set (471, 472 and 473) contained background colors in orange, pastel yellow and white. The same background color scheme was used on the 480 Set (473, 474 and 475). Since the 473 1 Qt round casserole appears in both sets, it is available in both white and orange with the brown hex pattern.
This version of Town and Country is the only version that ever appears in product inserts, advertisements and dealer catalogs. But another version of Town and Country exists.
Town and Country Version 2
444 Cinderella Bowl of version one, but appeared only in alternating brown or
orange on a white background.
Town and Country version two contained many of the same mixing and bake ware items as version one: Mixing Bowls (401, 402 and 403), Cinderella Bowls (441, 442, 443 and 444), Refrigerator Set, large round casserole set (473, 474 and 475), divided dish (063) and the small oval casserole (043).
Version 2 of Town and Country did not have a large oval casserole (045) or small round casserole set (471, 472 and 473).
Also available was a 2 Qt Round Casserole (024) with a solid brown pattern that was most likely sold as a promotional item with a cradle at some point in the mid-60s.
So, the mystery continues... Why was the second version of Town and Country produced?
