    A few of my favorites...
    Vintage Aqua aka Turquoise and (Bubblegum) Pink Pyrex Nesting Mixing Bowls... Two of the more popular colors. I really don't understand why they stopped making these gorgeous dishes.

    Info gathered from
    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
    Item Type: 400 / 300 Series Pink Mixing Bowls Set
    Years Manufactured: 1956 - ?
    Values: Check below on Ebay for approximate prices
    Sizes and ID#s: #401 (1.5 pint) #402 (1.5 quart) #403 (2.5 quart) #404 (4 quart)
    Original Box#s: 300-18 (300 set)

    The 400 series Pink Solid Colored Pyrex Mixing Bowls are definitely a collector favorite (though personally, I think they are a bit overrated versus some of the other patterns). It’s definitely one of the higher priced more common sets around so if you see some Pink vintage pyrex bowls, be sure to get your hands on them!

    The Pink mixing bowl set has 4 pieces in the set, though you’ll often see only see the 3 smallest sizes. (Remember, these Pink bowls were also released later as a three bowl set (300 series) with the 4 quart bowl missing.) The bowls are: 1 1/2 pint 5 1/2 inch diameter, 1 1/2 quart 7 inch diameter, 2 1/2 quart 8 1/2 inch diameter, and a 4 quart 10 inch diameter bowl.

    "Aqua aka Turquoise 400 Bowls Set"
    I say Aqua aka Turquoise because to me they look more aqua than turquoise.
    The standard Turquoise Blue Mixing Bowls in the 400 line are fairly common but still very popular. This color, along with the Pink 400 bowl sets, seem to be more coveted than the other solid colors.

    The Turquoise mixing bowl set consists of the usual items in the 400 series: 1 1/2 pint 5 1/2 inch diameter, 1 1/2 quart 7 inch diameter, 2 1/2 quart 8 1/2 inch diameter, and a 4 quart 10 inch diameter bowl. Like most of the bowl sets, the largest four quart size is often more difficult to find and you’ll often see 3 bowl “sets” that only include the smaller 3 sizes. It was also released later as a three bowl set (300 series) with the 4 quart bowl missing.
