These are very rare and hard to find dishes as they were only produced for 2 years.

I found the following information on a site called ‘Corelle Corner’, which has great information about patterns for Pyrex and Corelle. http://www.corellecorner.com/home.html

Family Flair dinnerware (1957)
There were five patterns to choose from when this coupe-shaped dinnerware was introduced: Field Flower, Pine Cone, Chinese Grass, and Quince which was available in Pink or Yellow.  Within one year Field Flower and Pine Cone were dropped and the remaining patterns were re-named.  Quince became Pink Petal & Yellow Petal, and Chinese Grass became Sea Isle, which is turquoise.

Dinner plates, side plates, saucers and oval platters are patterned, and cups, soup/cereal bowls and oval serving bowls are solid-coloured.  Creamers & sugar bowls are also solid-coloured, but sugar bowl lids are patterned.  Family Flair was sold in 20-piece sets comprising four place settings.  The product line was available for two or three years.

PLEASE NOTE ALL THESE DISHES ARE SOLD!!!
